The architectural response for 12 Nexus Court required a solution that responded to its immediate context and the mix of uses above grade.
Our approach was to develop a dynamic form that is viewed from all four sides, so a symmetry is possible to consider to some extent, whilst a continual movement in the architectural language is necessary given the buildings location next to the 100km/h Monash Freeway.
We separated the uses to the building with the carpark levels providing a distinctive architectural language, whilst the office component provides a different language.
These two architectural uses are separated by a transition, (or sandwich) floor that allows for a slight setback in form to break up the singular architectural mass. A singular architectural footprint becomes 3 separate forms.
