A key feature of the Learning Centre is that every space, whether for active collaborative or individual reflection, has great access to natural light and views to the outside, which in themselves are found to be beneficial to learning outcomes.
The Plaza provides a landscaped civic space for social recreation and study, and is the main entry for the Learning Centre. The Plaza connects the surrounding environment to the first level welcome point, forum and gallery, social learning and cafe spaces.
The first level is visually and physically connected to the level 2 reception by large voids with feature stair and balconies overlooking the Plaza. These levels are designed to combine in operation to support a variety of events for students and the wider community.
