The design of a new office tower on Coronation Drive in Brisbane combines striking forms and materials to produce an outcome that is powerfully distinctive.
The hero, a ribbed glazed prism showcases a tapered void set into its profile and a cantilevering floor plate above. Each floor has uncompromising views of the river, and to the city and South Brisbane precinct.
A contrasting volume, wrapped in a terracotta screen, is positioned at the rear site to house many functional elements. The ground plane assumes a village-like presence, with a terracotta clad colonnade prompting movement into and around retail spaces.
