SAE is the world’s leading educator in creative media industries.  This project involved the development of a new campus located in a heritage listed building in central Sydney.  It is a response to the dynamic and evolving nature of their industry while meeting the highly technical requirements for teaching skills associated with recording, sound engineering, audio visual production, post production, mastering, gaming, animation, graphic design and interactive digital media.

Innovative technologies were employed to resolve isolation of acoustically sensitive areas from the building structure and to create rooms with a high level of acoustic comfort.
