Inspire learning and stimulate creativity in an educational facility filled with flexibility and functionality.

Use aluminium partitioning and sliding systems to disperse light throughout educational settings and watch the bright ideas spark.

Criterion’s range of products are ideal for schools, universities and public spaces requiring a uniform finish that can withstand the demands of student use.

Here are two recent educational projects which utilised Criterion products in Perth and Melbourne.

City of Perth Library

Designed by Kerry Hill Architects, the City of Perth Library is the first major civic building to be constructed in Perth for around 40 years, taking out the 2016 WA Architecture Awards and the inaugural 2017 Library Design Awards.

The building features 3,500 square metres of space over seven floors. Each floor targets a different demographic with a floor for young children with soft surfaces and age-appropriate furniture and a young adult floor with study rooms and recreation areas.

Kerry Hill Architects utilised the Platinum 120 aluminium partitioning system. Criterion’s signature suite, Platinum incorporates aluminium glazing frames across doors and windows.

This superior design heightens interior style and was complemented throughout the library by the use of Criterion’s Aurora Aluminium Doors.

Australian Catholic University

An elegant finish was achieved at the Australian Catholic University Melbourne using a range of Criterion systems. Perforum 90 was used as the aluminium partitioning system on the project. Perforum allows for plasterboard to be trowelled up, providing a clean and minimalistic appearance. Perforum is a low-maintenance suite that provides high-end aesthetics, delivering a precise and well-aligned premium finish on educational projects. Decorum Shadowline Skirting was used on the base of plasterboard walls to deliver a neat finish and a touch of distinction.
