🌱Sustainability

  • LEED Gold + BREEAM Very Good

  • Refurbishment of two existing 1955 buildings – design incorporated over 50% of existing structure, with other materials carefully selected for low environmental impact

  • Includes use of composite steel + cross-laminated-timber structural frame to connect the two buildings

  • Optimised lighting: high-transmittance glass to ensure maximum natural light + glare reduction – all outdoor lighting calibrated to prevent light pollution

  • High-performance bathrooms, showers + tapware = 45%+ water savings


🥦 Wellbeing

  • Floorplates benefit from abundant natural light, flexibility, and volume – some spaces with 4m floor-to-ceiling heights

  • Campus vibe: central private courtyard + landscaped terraces connect the 2 buildings = perfect breakout space for meetings and events

  • Air purity = 30% improvement on ANSI/ ASHRAE Standard (62.1-2010) – via silent ventilation system with humidity controls and air filters, capable of screening out viruses + microscopic particles

  • 57 underground parking spaces + 61 bicycle stations beneath the building

  • Designed to 1:5 occupancy – one of the highest ratios in the city


🎈Bonus feature

The building has been designed to alleviate the “heat island effect” by using light-toned flooring and maintaining plenty of green space. Deffo the city’s coolest new workspace.
