Wallpaper*, Issue: 15 Mar 2016
The Western Sydney University (WSU) has just got a new office, gallery and meeting space in the shape of the Chancellery fit-out by Australian architects Allen Jack + Cottier.
The Sydney based architecture firm was called upon to work on this project – the redesign of an existing space within the university’s Parramatta campus – which would become one of the institution’s key centres.
‘Our starting point with good workplace design is that it has to work at a practical level, whilst reflecting the vision and aspiration of our client,’ says Allen Jack + Cottier’s Scott Norton. ‘In this case, we were very fortunate that the Vice Chancellor clearly understood the value of good design.’
