NBRS SEEKS TO EXPLORE AND POSITIVELY TRANSFORM THE SOCIAL AND CULTURAL FORCES THAT SHAPE PEOPLE’S LIVES. 2


CORE VALUES SOCIAL ARCHITECTURE At NBRSARCHITECTURE we see that our purpose is to create life-changing environments for the people, communities and institutions we serve. Our user-centric, social architecture design skills help us to explore and positively transform the social and cultural forces which shape people’s lives. Our contemporary architecture is much more than simply buildings.

REAL INSIGHTS For NBRS design is the core of our practice. Our focus on thought leadership is an intentional journey to discover real insights; understanding and interpreting the needs and desires of the people and communities we serve. To do this we are committed to investing in the discovery of new concepts and applying these insights to guide our design thinking and solutions.

CREATIVE PARTNERSHIPS Through our investment in thought leadership, we believe that NBRS contributes to long-term and meaningful creative partnerships with clients and consultants. It is these creative partnerships which help to shape our communities to create life-changing environments.

INTERIOR EXPERTISE NAVIGATION

INTERACTION & COLLABORATION

This plays a critical role in both the functionality of a space and the user’s experience of a space. The base of navigating through a building or space can influence a person’s perception of the environment, even before they begin to use a space for its intended purpose.

Human interaction is important for both social and individual development. Creating formal and informal spaces for people to interact generates opportunities for people to socialise and collaborate in planned or spontaneous settings.

SCALE An understanding of human scale and its consideration within each design is crucial to the feel and function of a space. Who the core users are, from infants through to adults, will help to guide the scale of a design - both the overall environment as well as individual elements within a space. Scale can then be further utilised to enhance the feel of a space - open and expansive, cosy and intimate and anywhere in between.

PRIVACY & FOCUS Different roles and tasks require varying levels of privacy and concentration. By understanding who uses the space and how each space is used, a combination of visual and acoustic design elements can be developed to suit the levels of privacy and acoustics required for each space.

ADAPTABLE SPACES Adaptable spaces support the constantly changing needs of an organisation, whether it be on a day-to-day level or in a long-term capacity. Constantly developing technology has allowed people greater flexibility in the way they work and interact. Subsequently, the demand for adaptable spaces has increased to reflect the opportunities offered by new technology.

BRANDING Business branding and identity can be used to help guide the final outcome of a space. Branding can be incorporated into a design in many forms, from direct visual branding of a space through to creating a unique user experience that can be associated with a particular brand.

EDUCATION CENTRE AND AUDITORIUM The new Education Centre within New South Wales Parliament House provides a dedicated centre of excellence where students can develop an understanding of the government’s role in the state. The first of its kind in the parliamentary precincts, the new learning space increases teaching and learning opportunities at Australia’s first and oldest Parliament.

As well as building upon the number of school group visits, the space supports the delivery of new higher education programs. University students, teachers and educators can now also benefit from a range of education seminars and workshops.

LAW LIBRARY Set over two levels, the UNSW Law Library looks out on to the University’s historic main walkway and is a hub of activity. Due to the level of student interaction with the library, and an inefficient use of space, an upgrade of the existing facilities was required. UNSW approached NBRS to assist with the development of concepts to convert redundant Library space in to a collaborative student hub. The design includes student led spaces comprising seating areas, study booths, consultation rooms and a rework of the Library entry. An events display area is also being created to promote additional student interaction.

MODERN OFFICES “Modern offices align with the Taronga Conservation Society’s ethos and branding.”

Sydney’s Taronga Zoo desire to be at the forefront of animal conservation, with a commitment to the importance of education and scientific discovery in the fight against wildlife under threat. NBRS collaborated with Taronga Conservation Society to create a building that would support this commitment. A building that assists with the protection of our natural environment and inspires future generations.

Our approach was based around bringing together three major hubs: Learning, Science, and the Collaboration / Visitor Hub. Each hub not only connecting to each other but connecting to the wider zoo. Over three levels, the design centres around a vibrant atrium space that links the building’s functions and allows scientists, animals carers, educationalists and the public to interact. Modern offices align with the Taronga Conservation Society’s ethos and branding and support flexible working.

GRADUATE RESEARCH SCHOOL “A neutral palette was selected for furniture, finishes and fitments and has created a new minimal brand for the student facility.”

The University of New South Wales Graduate Research School provides leadership and support to Higher Degree Research Candidates, their supervisors and the broader research community. Due to an increase in staff appointments to support the school’s strategic programs, an upgrade of existing facilities was required. The vision for the refurbishment was to develop a contemporary and space efficient working environment that promotes

collaboration. New breakout spaces and areas for hot desking provide staff with a flexible environment that can be tailored to their specific requirements. Upgrades to the existing reception area, consultation rooms, storage spaces, and meeting rooms were also undertaken. A neutral palette was selected for furniture, finishes and fitments and has created a new minimal brand for the student facility.

MEDIA OFFICES & RECORDING STUDIOS “Incorporating state of the art technology around the mediums of studio recording, radio and print, the unique media precinct provides offices for the country’s leading news broadcasters such as ABC, Nine Network, Seven, Ten and Australian Consolidated Press.”

The Media Offices and Recording Studios within NSW Parliament House set a new standard in the design of multi-media facilities. Incorporating state of the art technology around the mediums of studio recording, radio and print, the unique media precinct provides offices for the country’s leading news broadcasters such as ABC, Nine Network, Seven, Ten and Australian Consolidated Press.

The vision for the project was to create a space efficient contemporary workspace that respects the historical significance of the building. By locating the offices around an existing atrium garden workspaces are light filled and provide views out to the established landscape. A neutral palette allows the garden to become the focal point of the design, as well as complimenting the heritage listed interiors of the Andrew Andersons 1981 design.

GALLERY SPACES

“...large flexible spaces for the exhibition of art, with adjustable daylighting, controlled environmental conditions and movable walls.”

The Art Gallery is located in the heart of Albury’s central business district, adjacent to QE2 Park, and it forms part of Albury’s Civic and Cultural Precinct. The project consists of the refurbishment of the existing heritagelisted Art Gallery building (circa 1910) and the adjacent Burrows House building (circa 1870), together with the provision of a new two-storey addition at the rear to accommodate major touring art exhibitions. NBRSARCHITECTURE worked in close collaboration with the staff and future users of the Gallery to establish their detailed requirements, and to create a facility that the Albury community will embrace. A large curved Foyer links the different elements of the project together and invites public access from both the main street and QE2 Park. The design provides

a contemporary glass and metal clad addition, while at the same time respecting the heritage character of the two existing buildings. The addition includes large flexible spaces for the exhibition of art, with adjustable daylighting, controlled environmental conditions and movable walls. The permanent collection will be housed in a series of smaller galleries within the refurbished existing buildings. The finished project incorporates a kinetic facade system, light sculptures, and interpretive art works, all designed to engage the public. Other facilities include a Gallery Shop, a Cafe/Restaurant with an outdoor Terrace, a Youth Members’ room, two Workshops for public participation and an extensive Collection Store.
