Client: ARIA Property Group
A simple glass display case placed in a garden in front of an existing office building in South Brisbane.
A reflective polished stainless steel roof with fine perimeter columns addresses the street and provides shelter, while the glass box within breaks away from the street alignment to settle into its garden setting and respond to its micro-context of adjoining window openings and solid walls.
Absolute transparency is the primary concern, with the entire interior easily visible from the street. The physical entry point is defined by a single arch, also of polished stainless, completely unembellished and stripped back to its pure abstracted essence as signifier of an opening.
