Completion: Feb 2017
Builder: Xenia Constructions
Reclaiming under-utilised basement floor area as new shower & change facilities for building users in Central Plaza, Brisbane, this end-of-trip facility pares back the existing remnant spaces to their raw, concrete-encased form and adds in only the bare minimum of new elements to create a atmosphere of austere but sensual luxury.
Human interaction with every item is considered in detail, with careful attention paid to every touch point and the daily process of cleansing the body and preparing for work or exercise.
Technological items such as in-locker phone charging, wi-fi and building information integration are all available but their presence is embedded within tactile, natural surfaces that are a delight to touch and effortless to use.
