Colour Award for Monash University Hall of Residence

29 April 2016

Authored by Hayball

Holman Hall, a student accommodation building at Monash University’s Clayton campus, has won the 2016 Dulux Colour Award for Multi Residential Interiors.

Hayball and Richard Middleton Architects designed the 6 level student apartment complex, and its neighbour Campbell Hall, as a rich urban experience for a cohort community to develop and flourish in.

A colour palette that gently graduates from pale golds through to rich reds has been utilised to create an identity for the building, assist in way finding through location-based colour and create a warm lantern effect externally at night.

The judges praised the “very sympathetic use of colour throughout this space, with careful consideration of the building’s aspects. The colours, featuring in student rooms, are used with purpose to create a sense of harmonious personalisation and functionality. The variety of powder coated finishes works beautifully alongside timber grains with a wash of colour.”
