The existing student spaces and the computer lab on level 2 of the David Caro South physics building were successfully converted into a contemporary offices. The refurbishment involves designing shared hotdesk work spaces across level 2 with private offices and meeting rooms for postgraduates and masters researchers. Improvements of the central mechanical system by WSP engineering provides the space with fresh and efficient ventilation. The interior utilised the concept of 'speed, eddies and flows' in creating active and fluid space. The compositional grid of the layout was tilted to achieve openings and to increase the sunlight penetration into the deep building plate.
