AJ+C Western Sydney University Chancellery Fitout - Scott NortonThe challenge for this project was to create a space that reflects the University’s place in an international community whilst retaining the connection to the Western Sydney context: it needed to be both welcoming, open and elegant, yet still feel grounded and relevant.
Director and Head of Interiors, Scott Norton.
A NEW IDENTITY
Coinciding with the official rebranding of Western Sydney University was the opening of the new Chancellery at the Parramatta Campus. This location represents the geographical and symbolic heart of Western Sydney University, and reinforces the network with Sydney’s largest growing economic and business centres.
The Chancellery is designed as both a functioning workspace as well as a busy meeting place for international guests, colleagues and students. Allen Jack+Cottier created a contemporary high-end interior reflecting the University’s reputation and aspirations for the future. The fitout provides a more open and collaborative setting rather than a traditional institutional feel.
MODERN and INCLUSIVE
Architecturally, the spaces are very crisp and clean, with public and private spaces clearly delineated by an undulating timber wall. Back of house workspaces are designed to bring in light and views and to encourage a more collaborative approach to what is essentially a cellular structure.
