John Hope Gateway Building

Door open days


Opened in 2009 the John Hope Gateway Building has been designed by Edward Cullinan Architects with sustainability as a guiding principle.

Engineered timber is prominent, and is used both structurally and as a decorative feature. The laminated wood spiral staircase is a showcase for timber technology as well as being a beautiful structure.

A tour of the building provides an opportunity to find out about the timber technology used in the construction and some of the other environmental features of the building.
