La Trobe University Library
Kosloff Architecture’s interior design for La Trobe University’s Bendigo library explores the range of experiences the physical library might offer, and how might these evolve and change over time. It also considers the way in which the library might foster engagement, not only between campuses, but also more broadly with industry and the surrounding community.
The design framework is based on minimal intervention, a clear hierarchy of investment and a consistent design language throughout. The existing shell had potential to act as a backdrop for the activities of the library and Kosloff’s design celebrates the inherent qualities of this space, as well as providing the base infrastructure required to provide upmost flexibility and functionality.
Join a tour of the library’s facilities which include a Digital Learning Lab with virtual reality technology, Library Digitisation Hub to transform rare, fragile and culturally-significant documents into accessible digitised items, and a purpose-built home for the local Sandhurst Collection. Led by the library team.
