From business park to an urban village.

Brief

The Australian Technology Park is one of the largest mixed-use commercial developments in Australia. The 105, 000 sqm undertaking was to comprise of a variety of function spaces— ranging from offices (of varying types and modes), community, recreational, arts and retail spaces. Within the masterplan, construction of two new buildings—Buildings 1 and 2—were commissioned for the purpose of housing a range of A-Grade office and workspaces for the Commonwealth Bank.

Solution

We worked on the design of Buildings 1 and 2 in collaboration with FJMT Architects and Aspect Studios up to DA approval. For the design of the towers, we implemented the innovative use of large floor plates which allowed for an efficient layout of office and service spaces throughout the towers. Reminiscent of large-scale contemporary industrial offices, each building is distinct in layout and design. Building 1 feature central atriums and a curved floor plate. In Building 2, we worked to create a form that responded to the existing locomotive workshops north of the site. In doing so, we created an extrusion of three parallel fingers that appear to extend towards the workshops, interspersed by a series of light-filled atriums.
