The Junior Common Room main hall and surrounding suite of rooms (including Billiard Room designed by Robyn Boyd) were dramatically under-utilised and in need of transformation. Creating a cafe, a games room and a billiards room in these unique spaces provide an inviting social hub to support the diverse interests and activities of the Ormond community. The spaces will accommodate a wide range of social activities, such as quiet chats between friends, groups of students enjoying a small late night gathering, students studying collaboratively, gatherings of academic and general staff and large college parties and functions to which alumni and other guests may be invited. Designing the space to work for a wide range of activities without it being just a reconfigurable barn was the key design challenge of the project.

This project was shortlisted in the Victorian 2012 Institute of Architecture Awards in the Heritage Category.
