F23 Administration Building   Sydney, Australia

The new F23 Administration Building is located at the gateway of the Camperdown and Darlington campuses of the University of Sydney, occupying a prominent and important site at the entry to Eastern Avenue from City Road.

The building will collocate the university’s Senior Executive teams and associated administration functions from across the site, to become the campus' new visible presence to the world.

Over the last ten years Eastern Avenue has been redefined as the primary gateway to the university. It contains some of the university's oldest and most prestigious buildings. Given the importance of it's function, the new F23 Administration Building has been designed to present an appropriate civic presence to the university whilst being sympathetic to its context.

In addition to serving as the building’s lobby, the ground floor will contain public exhibition, symposium, event space and a café, all of which are critical in establishing the community element to the project.

The building has been configured with high glazed façades creating transparency and visibility into the interior that will not only promote awareness of the exhibitions and events, but also encourage a greater degree of connectivity to Eastern Avenue.

The design is both highly efficient and functional, with collaboration and interaction encouraged around a central atrium; which also benefits from flexible, column free, contiguous spaces at the building’s perimeter.
