Lignapal Tasmanian Blackwood (183.21)

The Gateway project forms a dramatic visual connection between the University of Melbourne campus and the centre of the Trinity College.

Project Architect, Stefanie Greiner from Mclldowie Partners was given the task to seamlessly reflect Melbourne’s history whilst being contemporary and innovative.

Together with our team at George Fethers, the Tasmanian Blackwood was selected for its warm colouring and sustainable sourcing to form the facetted and complex geometry of the ceilings and wall panels of the Craig Auditorium of the Gateway building. Stefanie claims it was one of the highlights of the project.

Stefanie comments “The facetted surfaces are not only a source of delight aesthetically, they also work acoustically. The warmth of the timber wall visible through the glazed cloister walls adds to the invitation for students of both campuses to use the building as a gateway”

George Fethers’ Tasmanian Blackwood without a doubt gave the space a sense of tradition and elegance.

Lignapal Tasmanian Blackwood (183.21) is available in 2.7m X 1.2m sheets on a variety of substrate thicknesses. Please contact George Fethers sales team for product enquiries on (03) 9646 5266.
