Australian Catholic University Library 

A new modern space that encourages collaboration

As part of a Master Building Plan and to accommodate for the increased intake of law students at Australian Catholic University (ACU), there was a need to increase the library size, with the law section of the library as the pinnacle of the fitout. SHAPE added a third level to the existing library, with study areas, group meeting rooms, and break out zones, as well as an internal stair to connect all library levels.


“We are delighted to announce Practical Completion was achieved yesterday on the Library, well ahead of the expected Contract Completion. This is a monumental achievement by SHAPE, the design team and everyone involved. We would like to thank you all on behalf of ACU.
