The Premis team completed a fit-out at the University of Queensland’s Faculty of Engineering, Architecture, and Information Technology to house the student and academic administration office.

Premis worked in collaboration with Hassell Architects to update the existing workplace to align with the faculty’s vision of improving their offer to students.

The main design challenge was to create a visually rich transparent environment to engage with the student body whilst maintaining a high level of acoustic and visual privacy for the staff. A full height glazed façade was installed to allow students to see inside the space, while oversized entry graphics created the visual impact the faculty was looking for.

The project featured exposed elements of the base building structure to enhance the visual richness of the space while paying respect to the surrounding architecture. A bespoke screening system incorporating planting, display shelves and moveable acoustic panels was also installed, providing a visual yet transparent barrier between reception and the workplace.
