Seddon Research Offices

The University of Queensland Research Offices, St. Lucia Campus, Brisbane

For the Seddon refurbishment the initial brief was to provide consultation, group session rooms and office spaces for the school of health and rehabilitation sciences. This was to enable ongoing research in speech pathology, audiology, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. Housing these activities in a building which was constructed in the late 50’s presented numerous issues. Some of which were the narrow dark spaces and low ceiling heights which are typical of these types of institutional buildings. As a result one of the main goals for the project was to create light filled spaces while being receptive to the existing fabric of the building.
