Western Australia’s first large-scale timber building is due to be built at Murdoch University.

The four-story building, constructed from locally sourced timber, will house the University’s School of Business and Governance and include offices, learning spaces, and informal gathering areas.

The project is designed by Lyons Architecture working with Officer Woods, The Fulcrum Agency, STH and Aspect Studios.

It is inspired by the modernist architecture of the existing campus and will feature flexible partitions and a new arrival court to act as the main entrance to the campus in the south.  Five existing buildings will be demolished to make way for the new construction.
