Press Release: AJ+C embarks on new student housing in Western Australia

12.06.09

Allen Jack+Cottier (AJ+C) continues its successful partnership with Campus Living Villages; collaboration that is well known for setting the benchmark for student accommodation in Australia. Campus Living Villages asked AJ+C to join them in bidding for the addition of new student housing for Edith Cowan University, Western Australia.

The bid was successful and the design team, led by Principal Michael Heenan and assisted by Project Architect Dua Cox, employed a winning approach by focussing on building a strong sense of community throughout the proposal, in particular, making meaningful connections between the new and the existing accommodation.

The student village is located at the Mount Lawley campus of Edith Cowan University in Western Australia, approximately four kilometres from Perth. The project introduces an additional 355 beds, expanding the established 166 to create a village atmosphere encompassing both old and new. See the attached press release for more.
