UTAS Library

Inveresk, Tasmania
Designer / Architect

The new UTAS library and student experience building was driven by a sense of discovery, remapping a historically significant part of the city to create a contemporary learning environment. The precinct offers a playful dialogue with existing Launceston landmarks and its ultra elegant interiors, individualized through considered finishes, design details and art.

‘In deep consultation with community including First Nations voices to embed indigenous experience and knowledge within the spaces, the new addition to the campus establishes a distinct presence with a clear sense of arrival, journey and orientation’ says Wardle.

Our Ecoustic® acoustic panels and baffles are key for visual and aural comfort, placed throughout the library and campus.

Products used: Ecoustic® Baffle 25mm Opal acoustic baffles, Ecoustic® Panel 50mm Opal, Ecoustic® Panel 13.5mm Dove, Charcoal, Fresco, Oatmeal, Lemon + Paprika acoustic panels
