iZone - Robertson Library, Curtin University

Date: 2008

This refurbishment involved the creation of a contemporary self-learning area within the context of a traditional library on the Bentley campus.  With a focus on the exchange of information, it is a 'technology rich' zone, providing opportunities for study on various levels within a more relaxed, cafe-style environment. Individual work, group work as well as more formal presentations can occur in the largely open area. Zones are created via permeable screens, moveable glazed writing screens and through space-defining floor and ceiling treatments. This project received a commendation from the WA Chapter of the Institute of Architects, won the sustainability award by InterfaceFLOR, and the Innovative Lighting award by Mondoluce.
