NUspace is a $95 million landmark education precinct in the heart of Newcastle's CBD, harnessing the latest in technology and innovation in teaching and learning to deliver a world-class student experience.
Lyons Architecture teamed with local firm, EJE Architecture, to create the iconic NUspace. The building was designed to maximise the commanding views to surrounding landmarks with views through to Stockton, across the harbour and up to The Hill. NUspace shows the region at its best.
The NUspace smart design has been awarded 5 green stars. With a focus on sustainability and minimising energy consumption, features of the building include external sun shading, high performance double glazing and thermally engineered aluminium frames. NUspace maximises natural ventilation, and uses rainwater harvesting and reuse for toilet flushing and landscape irrigation.
The construction of NUspace was supported by Australian Government funding of $30 million through the Education Investment Fund Regional Priorities Round, NSW Government funding of $25 million, and $40 million invested by the University.
