A new gateway into the centre of the Murdoch University campus, Building 360 Boola Katitjin showcases their vision for a sustainable student future achieving a 6 star Greenstar performance rating and mass engineered timber structures.

Lyons Architects spearheaded a truly collaborative design effort, partnering with local studios Officer Woods, The Fulcrum Agency, Silver Thomas Hanely and Aspect Studios.

Building 360 Boola Katitjin provides it students with new large collaborative learning spaces, experimental technology labs, informal student and academic spaces amongst bespoke retail outlets.

It marks the beginning of the transformation of Murdoch University, creating a new address to the campus, resolving long standing access issues, consolidating the academic core and exploring the potential of using highly flexible spaces to accommodate future needs for teaching and learning.

A distinct feature of Boola Katitjin is its use of a world-leading engineered timber frame. Marking the first mass timber building in Western Australia, this 16,000sqm building feels right at home in the bush campus of Murdoch University.

With its lower carbon footprint and increased opportunities for natural ventilation, the timber structure contributes to the environmental sustainability of the building and will receive a World Leadership 6 Star Green Star rating.

Working closely with builders Multiplex, Innerspace provided over 3,000 pieces of furniture to this new learning precinct. From high tech lecture rooms, cafes and breakout spaces, meeting rooms to laptop and computer labs, a wide range of furniture was selected to create a warm learning environment.
