Ormond College Academic Centre // McGlashan Everist Architects


McGlashan Everist Architects’ adaptive reuse of Romberg & Boyd’s heritage-listed building supports diverse learning styles and access to knowledge in its many forms. The inspiring design creates flexible spaces and integrates the library, digital technology and educative modes. The faceted lantern draws on Islamic architecture and the tradition of reading-room domes, while sculpted joinery frames views to the outside and select materials offer warmth, tactility, calm and acoustic control.
