University of Sydney SIT Building
Successful completion of another project for a client with special needs.
In June 2006 A W Edwards completed the new Information Technology Building for the University of Sydney. The building occupies a highly visible site in Cleveland Street, Darlington and its eye-catching, energyefficient, minimalist architecture has made it one of Sydney’s most talked about new landmarks.
The building is for the express use of the University of Sydney School of Information Technologies. It includes teaching and support facilities for graduate and postgraduate students, lecturers, professors and support staff. Gross floor area is approximately 9,000m2 including 2 levels of basement car parking, 5 levels of office and teaching spaces and 1 plant and roof level.
The façade has a mix of aluminium framed glass and composite stainless steel and aluminium panelling above a 3 m high band of highly polished granite pre-cast concrete panels. An important physical and aesthetic feature of the building is a 3-storey cantilevered glazed access stair attached to the southern side of a central atrium.Download PDF
