Location: Fort Smith, NT, Aurora College Thebacha Campus

Date Completed: 1995

 

Blurring the line between old and new, this major renovation of a substantial area of the Thebacha Campus Trade Complex mediates between the existing building and the new adjoining Applied Arts and Library Building designed by PMA.  The renovated entrance level houses the consolidated Thebacha Campus Administrative Offices, while the converted 4-classroom wing of the second floor accommodates the Aurora College Administrative Offices. The result of the space planning and material palette is a connection between the old and new buildings that is comfortable, open, bathed in natural light and enriched with views to the Arts and Library Building, the Trade Complex and the newly created landscaped courtyard below.
