The University of Melbourne International House George Hicks Building

The University of Melbourne

Peter Elliott Architecture + Urban Design

This project involved the construction of the new George Hicks Building. The Centre for Living and Learning includes 57 student apartments, a café, commercial kitchen, tutorial classrooms, and major presentation rooms.

The building design features a lyrical curving façade to take advantage of the extraordinary landscape setting with extensive views over Royal Park, Royal Parade and the college campus.

The project also involved minor works to the Scheps Building and construction of a new bike shelter. The installation of a new substation to supply power to the entire International House College was also part of the scope.
