Gateway Building for Trinity College / McIldowie Partners

The Gateway Building sits prominently along Melbourne University?s historic circulation artery, the Tin Alley precinct. The new building forms a dramatic visual connection to the University from the centre of the Trinity College campus. The brief given to McIldowie Partners, was for the Gateway Building to serve as a new interface between Trinity College and the University. Affiliated with Melbourne University since 1872, Trinity College is home to the prestigious and successful Foundation Studies program ? an academic ?gateway? that prepares up to 1,800 international students for entry into the University?s undergraduate courses each year. According to Director of McIldowie Partners, Steven McIldowie, the Gateway Building seamlessly reflects Melbourne?s history in brick and bluestone masonry whilst being contemporary and innovative in its own right. ?Where traditionally, education buildings look inwards, we aimed to showcase Trinity College to the pedestrian flow linking the College and the University,? says McIldowie.
