Curtin School Of Design + The Built Environment


Perth, Australia






A landmark for Curtin University, this exquisite new facility for The School of Design and the Built Environment sits within the heart of Curtin’s innovation precinct. Designed to serve as a living laboratory and teaching tool, the multi-storey education complex includes a makerspace, collaboration hub and multiple exhibition spaces.

‘The new building contributes significantly to the vibrant University community, enabling world-class student engagement, learning and teaching, research, collaboration and industry partnerships’ says Wardle.

Our Ecoustic Felt Panels have been used in various thicknesses and colours as building blocks for the aesthetics and acoustics of each unique space. Used as wall panels, pin boards and operable walls, the panels absorb unwanted reverberation from the surrounding hard finishes of concrete and natural timber.
