We’ve been watching the University of Newcastle’s new city campus NeW Space go up for what feels like years, and, like many locals, we’ve been curious to see how the finished product would fit into the streetscape and community. UoN have taken a huge risk with this design, creating something that is never going to do anything but stand out from it’s surroundings, and from the initial sketches it was hard to see whether it would succeed.

Now that it’s finished and open, we can safely say that it has. NeW Space is a great addition to Newcastle’s ever-evolving CBD and we enjoyed our first look around the space at their recent community day. The next test, of course, is how it works as a university building – let’s hope the view isn’t too distracting! Will you be studying at NeW Space? Let us know what you think!
