Remodelling and refurbishment of the Victorian-era Sydney Works building and the connection to a 5,550m² new-build block incorporating a roof-top MUGA on a tight urban site for 600 students. To overcome the obstacles of varying levels between the old and new elements, we constructed a link block with a wraparound staircase and a lift.
