Studio spaces

There are specialised teaching and learning spaces available to students at the Wellington Faculty of Architecture and Design Innovation.


First year studio space

Students in their first year of Architecture or Design share a large studio on level one of the Wigan Street building. Hours for Architecture and Design students are allocated as per the University teaching timetable. After normal hours, Architecture and Design students can use the studio to do course work, complete projects, and work on assignments.

Students using this studio have a work area, an adjustable ergonomic chair, and a personal locker allocated for Trimester one and two.

Second, third, and fourth year studio spaces

Students in years two to four have their own large architecture or design studio space. These are separate, discipline-specific studio spaces, located throughout the Vivian Street and Wigan Street buildings. They are furnished with modelling tables, lockers and storage, CAD/design computers, and ergonomic chairs to suit the specific subject. These spaces are good for holding tutorials and meetings.

Fifth-year studio spaces (Professional Master's students)

The fifth-year Wellington School of Architecture studios are equipped with individually assigned desks and computer workstations, model and craft tables, and storage lockers. These are assigned to the School’s thesis-year students in the MArch (Prof).

Access hours

The studio spaces are available in term time during building access hours.
