Vet Clinic Practice Laboratory

Projects / Education & Research

Client: University of Queensland

The project sought to create an innovative self-directed learning space for Vetinary students to practise clinical skills in a mock setting accessible on a 24-7 basis.¬† The Laboratory included consultation rooms and an interactive laboratory space for practise and instruction on model animals. The teaching and clinic spaces incorporated audio visual systems to support student instruction and independent learning models. The laboratory‚Äôs new shopfront showcases the interior setting as a ‚Äėstage‚Äô presenting to the building‚Äôs central courtyard, transforming the banal retaining wall into a tiered intimate ‚Äėamphitheatre‚Äô that provides observation of the laboratory‚Äôs activities while creating an additional external informal teaching zone.
