Piazza Dell’Ufficio
by Branch Studio Architects

Winner: Small workspace interior of the year 2019 and Winner: Interior Project of the Year 2019. The Piazza Dell’Ufficio is a re-imagining of the former Caroline Chisholm College’s executive administration offices.

The spaces are primarily used by staff, the accounts department and student welfare, and cater for various size staff and student meetings. Before the renovation, the offices used to be comprised of small, disproportionate spaces and a meeting room with no natural light. Branch Studio Architects created an environment with more favourable working conditions, which reduced the visual barriers between staff and student interactions.

Judges comments: "This aesthetically pleasing space creates a break-out space for busy school life. There is a great balance between contemporary, recyclable and affordable materials and colours, creating a warm and calming environment that is suitable for student welfare," said the judges.
