Partnering with local winery, Gundaroo Gundog, second year Architecture and Landscape Design students were tasked with reimaging and conceptualising an innovative small winery.
Studying at UC gave me the confidence to try different disciplines within interior architecture – I’ve since worked on commercial, residential and industrial architecture projects. I feel I’m a well-rounded practitioner within my profession – thanks, in large part, to the study methods at UC.
