Law, Business + Economics Complex, Monash University

Monash University
Competition 2012

Denton Corker Marshall’s shortlisted competition entry for the Law, Business and Economics Complex at Monash University’s Caulfield campus accommodates the two faculties in highly flexible and collaborative environments.

It supports the broader campus academic program through a new 500 seat teaching space and contemporary technology-rich learning spaces.

The new development serves the campus community and adds vitality to the western end of the campus.  Importantly, the design creates a space of civic scale that invites and encourages external communities on to the campus.

The complex also accommodates a retail component consisting of a range of convenience and essential retail outlets, as well as food and beverage outlets focused on a campus room hub.

The distinctive cantilevered forms exploit the site’s high profile location, on the corner of Derby and Princes Highway and opposite the Caulfield Train Station, to declare the University’s presence.
