This interior refit implemented an innovative pedagogical typology for RMIT’s College of Business.
Its purpose was to create practice firms: simulated workplace environments for students that included places for collaboration, and for various modes of teaching and study.
BKK managed the design, documentation and construction of this project in three stages across three sites in Building 80.
The two smaller stages comprised new tea points in classrooms, and a new reception point and waiting space for Building 80. The largest involved converting three classrooms into three Practice Firms with reception, a kitchenette and a 25-seatboardroom.
BKK consulted with the College of Business to ensure the spaces were properly tailored for the learning and working activities they would house now and into the future.
We took a considered approach to materiality to create a durable but contemporary workplace feel in the practice firms.
