The ECU Moot Court Room fitout was the concluding stage in the extensive refurbishment of ECU’s B31 Library.
Being a single and constrained room, the fitout was required to serve the very specific function of a Moot Court Room including highly specialized technological integration, whilst providing the flexibility required of a multifunctional teaching space. With live images beamed as part of International and National Moot competitions, it was also essential that the room visually showcased ECU’s modern and professional facilities, and worked effectively and seamlessly.
JCY were responsible for the selection and nomination of all finishes and furniture, built and loose. Cabinetry was carefully designed to meet the very prescriptive functional and spatial requirements, whilst offering a simple and clean presentation that captured the Faculty’s desire for a contemporary application of traditional courtroom timber. This timber pallet was highlighted with restrained splashes of bright colour designed to enliven the space and to ensure a level of aesthetic integration with the iconic palette of the greater Library fit-out.
Working in close consultation with ECU Law and their specialist IT Department, ECU’s Moot Court successfully not only looked the part but played the part, all within a very tight budget and spatial envelope.
