Western Sydney University chose Artigo rubber flooring BS classic
Liverpool City Campus is a new building added to the Western Sydney University complex in western Sydney. The new campus in 100 Macquarie Street spans nine floors and accommodates up to 2,500 students, focussing on nursing, social work, anthropology, criminology and policing programs.
Up to 750 Western Sydney University healthcare students have access to state-of-the-art new teaching laboratories, making it one of the most technologically-immersed nurse training facilities in the country.
Wrapped in a double skin of glass, the sculptural form of the building creates a spectacular backdrop to the vibrancy of a revitalised, Macquarie Street Mall through a layering of space, light and transparency.
Setting a new standard for architectural excellence and sustainable design in greater Western Sydney, the building has been designed to achieve a 4 star green-star rating, using the latest technologies for improved efficiency in energy and water consumption.
The eye-catching stairs are a key design feature – featuring Artigo BS classic steps. Conceived by MPA architects as a means of “connecting space and time”, the stairs to all floors provide for a vertical campus.
For this project Artigo provided 800 sqm of our iconic studded BS Classic flooring, including the stairs, adding a touch of italian style with the bold “Rosso Ferrari” R922 shade.
