University College London

The heritage-listed Torrens Building on Victoria Square was the location selected by University College London (UCL) for its Australia School of Energy and Resources (its first campus outside the UK). Groundplay designed a visual language that appropriately connected London with Adelaide. Elements included internal wall-mounted light features, which focus on energy and resources, extensive glazing graphics, a suspended ceiling feature and a feature wall acknowledging past UCL Nobel Prize winners.
