Southern Coastal 2

"Stairs" - Mural Project by Darren Hutchens for Albany Residential College

Southern Coastal 2

Design concepts were developed through a range of engagement processes with the student residents. A bright and bold garden theme was chosen for the courtyard. Dynamic coastal and sporting imagery was used to create an unfolding narrative along both internal stairwells. Large scale, strong colour, bold shapes and a sense of fun and freedom brings the different areas to life. The intention of this suite of murals is to lift the spirits of the residents as they linger or pass through each day.

A challenging but transformative project due to time constraints and the nature of the site, this fantastic outcome was achieved with assistance from Albany mural artist and long time collabrator, Chad Marwick.
