Gow Hastings Architects
Fleming College A-Wing, Sutherland Campus
All project descriptions are provided by SBID Awards entrants.
Fleming College’s Sutherland Campus was established in 1973 within a park-like setting. Almost 50 years later, Gow Hastings Architects was commissioned to revitalise the outdated 76,000 sf A-Wing.
The process began by shedding the building’s aluminium envelope back to its steel frame, re-cladding it with alpolic aluminium panels – a lightweight material that gives the building a clean and luminous appearance. To break down the A-Wing’s solidity, its form was re-crafted by applying panels with “accordion folds”, and adding perforated versions over the windows. The overall effect is uplifting and playful. The design team outfitted the A-Wing with performance upgrades including new roofing, energy efficient glazing, LED light fixtures with occupancy sensors, and building components made of recycled materials.
The revamped building is transforming how students are experiencing and engaging with the institution, while strengthening the Fleming College brand and its ability to attract and retain students and faculty.
