Overview

Non-office buildings present unique challenges for sustainable design. Explore some creative case studies from Out of Office projects and how these ideas could be transferrable to you.

CASE STUDY: GLOBAL CHANGE INSTITUTE
Located on the historic St Lucia campus at the University of Queensland, the Global Change Institute is a leading research centre focused on addressing the challenges of global change. The bold $32 million structure is a ‘living building’ that aims to work with the environment, rather than consume its resources.

SPEAKER: Anne Kovachevich, ESD Leader, Arup

CASE STUDY: HOPKINS STREET AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT
Located in the heart of the working class suburb of Moonah, north of Hobart, the Hopkins Street Affordable Housing development is the first and only Green Star certified residential project in Tasmania. It is also the project that persuaded Housing Tasmania to toss out their existing housing specs in support of a paradigm shift in what social housing could and should be like.

SPEAKER: Peter Scott, Director, X Squared Architects
