E/L STUDIO has designed new office space for the inaugural UQ presence outside of Australia. The space, which was launched with an international conference the second week of June, will serve primarily to market to those interested in coming to study and research at UQ’s primary campus in St. Lucia, Queensland. As such, it needed to evoke the qualities of that campus, which in spring is flooded with the purple blossoms of the jacaranda tree.

The flowering of the jacarandas is akin to Washington’s Cherry Blossom season and is the gensis of the University’s distinctive colors of purple and green.

The office entry space provides a glimpse of that experience with custom wood panels laser-cut with an abstracted jacaranda tree in full bloom. The entry is also the orientation space connecting three discreet offices for support staff, many of whom ‘hot-desk’ on short visits from Australia.
