Faculty of Medicine Teaching Spaces

University of New South Wales

Lahznimmo Architects + Wilson Architects (Architects in Association) were commissioned by the UNSW to redevelop the teaching, learning and research spaces for the Faculty of Medicine and the Institute of Virology. The project involves the detailed briefing and design for two levels of undergraduate teaching including lecture theatres, flexible dry teaching spaces, group scenario teaching rooms, clinical skills and exercise physiology suites, anatomy and wet teaching laboratory spaces.  

Tanya and I taught in G08 last Tuesday for the first time - I just wanted to let you know - IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!
The set up is very clever whoever thought of it.

We managed to get claps and whistles at the end of the prac I think because they all felt engaged and involved with this new room set-up. Good design!

The upper floors contain scientific microbiological research laboratories and associated office write up spaces.  The top two floors are occupied by a separate tenancy for the Institute of Virology accommodating its research laboratories, including a PC3 suite, and dry research spaces for almost 300 researchers.  The whole development will accommodate over 1250 students and 750 research personnel.
