Trinity College Student Accommodation Melbourne University Parkville Campus, Melbourne, VIC

Project 100 demonstrates an innovative design solution to the challenges of a vertical residential typology: how to circulate and make meaningful connections to create a community and connect to broader campus life. All elements are carefully considered to provide students with a ‘home—away from home’ with a range of scale and character of communal space which supports social engagement.

The architectural approach emphasise the definition of coherent urban spaces. Drawing reference from the neo-gothic architecture and details of nearby buildings, the folded façade geometry reads as both a formal reference to its heritage context as well as an expression of individual occupancy and amenity.

Our design creates an environment that brings together living, study and play. The shared spaces are purposeful with vertical circulation centrally located to encourage interaction among students. An instant destination within the Parkville campus, the 100-bed facility offers a new co-living model for residents.
