Büro North collaborated with Lyons Architects to deliver the signage and wayfinding for the new RMIT Swanston Academic Building in Melbourne’s CBD.
The floorplate of each level is unique, responding to the views out and voids within the space. In response to this, our design challenge was to develop an efficient and unique system to guide people around the spaces, while maintaining sightlines and keeping information clear, simple and legible.
Ribbon-like signage forms mimic the traffic flows within the space and responds to the key destinations in each area. The resulting signage is organic, functional and representative of the way people will move around each level in order to reach their destinations.
