The University of Melbourne, Arts West is a signature building for the Faculty of Arts that affirms the reputation and quality of its academic program. The chosen site was already occupied by an existing basement plant room and 500 seat basement lecture theatre.
Arts West is built over seven levels on Professors Walk, opposite the heritage Old Arts Faculty Building. The building structure has been designed to span over the existing basement plant room and 500 seat lecture theatre. This required massive steel transfer beams, and 22metres spanning floors – the longest spanning floors Irwinconsult had designed to date.
