RMIT UNIVERSITY BUILDING 51 REDEVELOPMENT
RMIT UNIVERSITY, MELBOURNE

Building 51 is a key RMIT facility in Victoria Street, Carlton. Designed and constructed in the early 1970ís with a brutalist design in red brick and pre cast concrete design pallette that was of its time.

This project was undertaken by Morgan McKenna as Principal Consultant and is a partial upgrade of the building interior for the public and service core zones. The work was staged so the building could remain occupied throughout the works.

The refurbishment focused on lifts, lobbies and toilets. A design strategy for a retro 70ís aesthetic with bold colours, studded rubber flooring, moulded plasterwork and graphics, differentiates each level.

Stage: Construction complete.
