Student Accommodation Building 5

Australian National University

A focus on student collaboration

Student Accommodation building 5 (SA5) was conceptualised by the ANU, and its lodge operator for the building UniLodge, to improve the experience of students staying on Campus while maintaining the same project footprint. The 500 bed building was developed to include communal kitchen and dining facilities, unisex bathrooms, shared study spaces whilst reducing room size and facilities, to increase the collaboration within such a large building. S4B worked collaboratively with the design team to develop this new brief for the ANU and UniLodge as well as consulting on the options as part of the consulting journey.
