BKA Architecture revitalised Western Sydney University’s heritage-listed Building J on the Westmead Campus, crafting a dynamic Lower Ground Floor for specialised facilities. This adaptive reuse showcases an Architecture School Workshop, C2 Pharmacology Lab, Herbal Research and Development Lab, and a GMP Lab for pill production. Additionally, our design expanded to accommodate the National Institute of Complementary Medicine (NICM) Health Research Institute, seamlessly integrating three levels of cutting-edge laboratories alongside studio and workshop spaces for the architecture program. This transformative project harmonizes scientific precision with architectural innovation, enhancing the campus’s functionality and aesthetic appeal.
