CCJ were engaged to prepare options studies for reworking this residential college’s 40 year old commercial kitchen and dining precinct at the Australian National University. This led to the design of a new kitchen and back of house spaces, a new dining hall servery, student self service areas and a refurbished dining hall and entry zone. CCJ worked closely with the client (Burgmann College) to balance moral rights, built and cultural heritage considerations, with twenty-first century requirements.
The new facilities enable the College to cater for three daily meals for its 240 undergraduate residents. Scale and existing fabric of the adjoining areas has been enhanced through a sensitive adaption and expansion of the new facilities.
CCJ has since been engaged to prepare a strategic master plan for whole Burgmann College residential facility.
