Perumal Pedavoli Architects (PPA) were engaged as Head Design Consultants to design an iconic ‘state-of-the-art’ Allied Health Education Building including faculties of Nursing, Dental, Optical and Audiometry as well as a central Connected Learning Common / Library at the Western Sydney Institute of TAFE.  This project was completed in December 2015 with a total cost of $27M.


The concept worked on massing a 2 storey building with an internal activated “street” with functions peeling off in different directions.  A new campus entry with a double height colonnade was established as a key design element which allows for pedestrians to pass through the building on the way through the entry to the college heart / campus green, and other parts of the campus.  A glass skylight above this double height area reinforces the significance and prominence of the building and colonnade and provides natural daylighting to all the adjacent areas.
