Tailored Educational Spaces for Hospitality Students

South Metropolitan TAFE Hospitality Facility

At the heart of the building lies a central outdoor courtyard, connecting the main dining zone with the outdoors. This deliberate indoor/outdoor connection was integrated into the design, not only flooding the building with natural light but also enhancing the hospitality experience with the option for outdoor serving. The expansive glass bifold doors effortlessly link the

dining space to the atrium. Serving as the focus of the interior, this atrium courtyard embodies the essence of community, collaboration, and gathering, providing students with a dynamic space to socialise, and engage. The building incorporates several smaller atriums, echoing the same design style and building on the indoor/outdoor connection.

Moving inside, the facility’s layout cultivates an atmosphere of flexibility and collaboration, specially designs to accommodate a variety of hospitality practices including dining, bar, hairdressing, beauty, and other hospitality services. Adaptable areas can transition seamlessly between varied teaching modes,

fostering an engaging, student-centric pedagogy. The central bar and hospitality training zones replicate authentic commercial environments, ensuring learners gain practical experience that accurately mirrors their future workplaces.
