PNR Building, University of Sydney - blog post image

Upholstery Solutions were recently commissioned to supply custom-shaped banquette seating and wall panels for the Peter Nichol Russel (PNR) Building at the University of Sydney. The project was part of a larger scheme of capital refurbishment designed to modernise the Unversities' public learning spaces.


The PNR Building was redesigned to be a more open, collaborative learning space. At the heart of this are lines of continuous, zig-zag banquette seating (pictured below). The complex, custom shape allows groups to sit in proximity whist also being small and private - facilitating quite discussion and group collaboration. In effect, the seating allows public thoroughfares to become learning spaces: outside the traditional socratic lecture theatres and meeting rooms. 


What do you think? Can furnishing design improve how groups learn? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
