The Australian Institute of Management’s Katitjin Centre in suburban Perth has achieved a 6 Star Green Star rating without compromising the aesthetics or building operation.

Thanks to leading edge design and careful selection of materials, the Australian Institute of Management’s Katitjin Centre is the first in Western Australia to achieve a 6 Star Green Star Education Design v1 certification.

The centre is located on a leafy campus in the suburb of Floreat and draws management students from industry, commerce and government. The three-level building has a gross floor area of 1400 square metres and incorporates nine training rooms, two syndicate rooms, lounge and breakout areas, networking and meeting facilities, and basement car parking.

The design adopts simple architectural forms drawn from the existing campus.“The building responds to the sloping campus topography and existing verdant landscape,” says Cox’s project architect John Lee. “Extensive use of glazing affords views to a natural bushland reserve adjacent to the site.A covered walkway to the north provides sunshading and entrance protection while establishing a pedestrian spine across the site.”

A double height entrance combines with extensive use of glazed partitions and operable wall to give the interior a light and airy character.
