The future of University learning delivered within protected heritage environment

The Roseworthy Student Hub is both a modern, practical learning facility and an impressive architectural example of Adelaide’s 19th century history. Offering a relaxing place for students to meet, study, make social connections and exchange ideas, the Hub is described by UoA as representing “the future of university life right in the heart of the third oldest University in Australia”.

Sensitivity to the state heritage listed requirements of the building was forefront for the design and build. Early involvement of the Sarah team fostered a collaborative environment in which to balance the needs of both the heritage architect and the client outcomes.

The result was a “state-of-the-art hub for gathering and learning” within an 1880s setting, praised by students and local media alike.
