Brisbane Girls Grammar School’s new Research Learning Centre is a building specifically designed to excite the search for knowledge. With a 100 year old tree setting the scene, m3architecture have designed five storeys of book-lined rooms as a place to lose oneself. The custom carpet designed by m3architecture has a base colour consistent with recent libraries and public buildings, with an overlay pattern derived from the shadow and leaf litter of the tree. The carpet is a continuum, moving across floors, along passages and winding up whimsical staircases. The two-story spaces inspire joy and curiosity in learning and within the timber-lined carpeted balconies there is a sense of warmth and robustness.
