项目坐落于墨尔本本多拉地区，是RMIT大学的学生公寓。RMA事务所受RMIT所托设计学生公寓，其设计将为在校生提供最好的居住环境。RMA事务所与RMIT以及公寓的经营者Unilodge紧密合作，保证居住在公寓里的人可以享受到公共空间带来的各种便利，并在核心区设计充足的学生活动功能。该建筑的设计是简单的偏斜十字架，被澳大利亚古老的植物环绕。这些树木包括以Wurundjeri氏族祖先命名的Keelbundoora Scarred Trees。
Situated within an Aboriginal heritage site on Clements Drive at its Bundoora West Campus, BWSA (Bundoora West Student Accommodation) is RMIT University’s foray into on campus student housing.Richard Middleton Architects (RMA) was engaged by RMIT to design halls of residence that would offer the best possible model for on-campus living within an increasingly competitive setting.RMA worked intensively with RMIT, and also the building’s operator, Unilodge, to ensure that its residents would live within halls that offer the most supportive community possible thus, the functions of university life were to be incorporated within this building at its core.The building’s simplistic plan, a skewed cross, is the result of its placement amongst the ancient redgums that surround it within this culturally significant site. Some of these trees are Keelbundoora Scarred Trees which have been named after a Wurundjeri clan ancestor.

This ‘nexus’ is framed by a six-level LVL (laminated veneer lumber) structure. An intentional exercise in demonstrating the possibilities of timber in multi residential/commercial applications whilst inevitably adding to the warmth and tactility of the communal spaces.

This gave rise to the idea of a multi purpose hub at the intersection of the building’s three wings. This hub would be themed and zoned, progressing from larger gathering spaces on the lower levels to quieter communal spaces on the upper. These spaces would serve a variety of functions, from bookable rooms to a TED space, but also encourage residents to move between each level via a winding open stairwell encouraging their serendipitous interaction.

BWSA offers apartment types that are unique to the market ranging from low cost communal and single occupancy living to larger apartments suited for couples. Its entire southern wing consists of Quad apartments that each contain 4 bedrooms and two ensuite bathrooms. From Level 1 to Level 3 the east and west wings consist of 18sqm SOUs whilst the levels above offer incrementally larger SOUs at 27 and 36sqm, catering to a post-graduate market.This skewed placement avoids direct solar orientation, with each of its 372 bedrooms designed to encourage its occupants to study at large operable windows, offering views across the landscape. Its folded zinc and bronze facade provides deep reveals whilst minimum standards of lighting and natural ventilation are exceeded to the benefit of its thriving student community.
Although built conventionally, the only modular components of the shell being its lightweight facade, the apartments are designed on a grid that allows for services to utilise common risers which flank each corridor and ventilate to the roof. Each corridor is glazed at its end with actuated windows drawing cool outside air via thermal chimneys at the inners ends of the east and west corridors. Additionally the south wing is naturally ventilated and the hub has actuated windows assisting cross ventilation throughout.
