Building futures - one cell at a time | LIMS Complex by Lyons Architects

In designing Melbourne Australia’s La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS), Lyons Architects were able to integrate ground-breaking design and functionality with the philosophy that lies at the heart of the building’s purpose.
The building’s design is like cells - so appropriate for a molecular science institute. These “cells” accommodate student learning areas and labs, and specifically represent a defined “pathway” of learning, where students may progress from undergraduates to, ultimately, Lead Researchers. This is even reflected in one of the building’s central elements, a long stairway symbolic of this journey of the mind.
And just as the LIMS facility represents a transformation for its students, it also heralds an attempt to transform La Trobe with a large step away from the traditional architecture that dominates the university’s campus. LIMS stands out in sharp contrast with its unconventional thinking, both inside and out – a catalyst for breathing new life into La Trobe.
