Shaw Contract Design Awards 2018 - Winner - Educational Facility Category

With two new hospitals opening up in Bendigo, a state-of-the-art training facility was needed to support the region’s growing health industry. Our objective was to create a vibrant, community-focused, centre of excellence for Bendigo TAFE that would help to generate a skilled local workforce and attract quality educators.

“Our vision was to transform the campus into an active, vibrant place that prioritises the learner and creates an open and welcoming street interface for the Bendigo community.”
Justin Littlefield

Utilising biophilic design principals, the contemporary glass façade and new entrances have opened up the campus to the community, providing a transparent, engaging interface with the street that celebrates the activity and learning within, and provides an abundance of natural light to aid productivity and wellbeing for students and teachers.
