The 'Village Heart'

The Place Experience

Arriving in Union Court - you will find the most highly activated part of the campus; a new destination for both the Campus and Canberra communities to enjoy. 

The Focal Point

Its focal point is the new square as an amazing living room for the campus – a place to meet and to linger; a crossroads from all directions and a processional walkway that will connect the library and learning commons. 

Sharing Ideas

To the left, a grove of trees and sittng edges that will become the new place for socialising with friends and sharing ideas.   

The square will be strongly defined by the grouping of the library and learning centre, student life building, and health and wellbeing centre - to create a sense of urbanity and place.

The Lawn Level

At the lawn level, cafes and shops will spill out onto the edges of the court providing animation and vibrancy well into the evening. This will become one of the most used and photographed spaces at the heart of the campus – the progression from lawn to pond to the sower natural, wilder landscape beyond with black mountain in the distance; will create the perfect warm weather place to experience the sunset.
