Knox Innovation Opportunity and Sustainability Centre (KIOSC) in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia by Woods Bagot:

KIOSC has established a centre of excellence training hub for the delivery of green education and training, focusing on environmental sustainability and responsible management.

The centre presents an exciting opportunity to combine both sustainable practice in building design along with secondary and TAFE (Technical and Further Education) curriculum.  Engaging with seven different schools, the building will also be used by Swinburne University TAFE students.

The design of the building reflects its purpose of operation – sustainability, inclusion and innovation.  It includes sustainable materials, energy efficiency through correct building orientation and integration of siting and building fabric with engineering services.

KIOSC itself will act as a learning tool for the students and will enable them to develop an understanding of how buildings, people and the natural environment interact.
