Media Design School








NZ Commercial Project Awards 2022

The details

Media Design School, a digital education campus, was established in 1998 in a converted office building on Albert Street. As the institution grew, the school looked to the Auckland Wynyard for its new home. Staying true to its roots, the new campus was to open in a newly built office tower.

The Auckland Education Campus Interior Design project involved converting over four-and-a-half levels of office space into an education facility. Media Design School required approx. 20 specialist digital teaching spaces, 7 main teaching stream areas, a large hub, and pockets of breakout spaces for independent learning to be placed throughout the campus.

Cachet Group designed the space to reflect the institution’s continuous pathway philosophy. A key feature included the “teaching pathway” acoustic ceiling with integrated LED wayfinding lighting that connects all teaching spaces on each floor. Each zone in the building also received its own colourway, and incorporated student and local artwork imprinting their identity into their new home. A standout element is the new stair that provides connection between the teaching floors of the campus and helps with the wayfinding. The stairs were painted blue to represent the flowing water and the triumph of challenges tying into the cultural narrative of the institution.
