The brief focused around creating a space for the teaching and practice of hospitality, from the production and preparation of gourmet food to the serving and management of tables and bars. The restaurant space is central to the design, working as both a public dining and private teaching area. Fed internally from the adjacent production, finishing kitchens and utility areas, the restaurant space opens out onto external landscaped grounds and into the internal glazed atrium. This two-sided atrium space acts as a spine to the building and forms a crucial connection between the future southern carpark and the central northern landscaped Campus grounds. Clad in precast concrete, corrugated steel and glazed walls, the single level structure picks up roof shape references from its neighbouring building forms while creating a new interpretation on design and materiality.
