lahznimmo architects and Wilson Architects are working in association on the expansion of the Wallace Wurth Building for the Faculty of Medicine and Kirby Institute at UNSW. The project realises Stage Two of the Biomedical Research Precinct following the recently completed Lowy Cancer Research Centre also by lahznimmo architects and Wilson Architects. The building houses three main types of activities: undergraduate teaching, wet research laboratories and dry research office space. The facade responds to the program within, generating complementary yet different architectural expressions. The Wallace Wurth Building sits on a prominent corner of the campus and creates a cohesive relationship with the adjacent Lowy Cancer Research Centre by extending the precast language around the corner. The consolidation of the corner as a single architectural expression creates a landmark corner building to the campus.
Status: Stage 1 complete. Stage 2 due for completion Feb 2014
Project Value: $120 Mil
Client: Lend Lease and UNSW
