Wirltu Yarlu expansion

Aboriginal Artwork by Kaurna, Ngarrindjeri, Narungga, Wirangu artist Gabriel Stengle, and other Indigenous artists, will feature in a refurbishment of the Wirltu Yarlu offices.

Project details

Phase 1 of the project is within the main administrative area of Wirltu Yarlu on level 1 Schulz.

A four-person closed office and adjacent meeting room will be converted into an open-plan office for twelve people, and the existing post graduate lounge will be changed into a large meeting room.

New furniture, improved acoustics, and multiple Indigenous artworks, including laser-cut plywood panels and a woven echo panel, will adorn the walls and help provide separation of space.

The existing student breakout area and tutorial room in Hartley 121 and 122 will be refurbished into a student kitchen and student Hub.

The updated space will include new timber flooring, joinery, lockers, and window furnishings. Feature furniture and a large mural will showcase Indigenous artists.

Expected completion of phase 1 is April 2024.

Expected completion of phase 2 is July 2024.
