A sculptural tower provides views over surrounding areas while at the lower levels the architecture responds to the context of the local precinct.
The site, with frontages located to both Church Street and Kingston Street, offers a unique opportunity for a design response that bridges the gap between the finer grain and culturally rich, suburb of Richmond and the newer sophisticated developments of future Church Street.
The site is well served by public transport routes and is well connected to various cycling and walking networks, as well as civic spaces making it an ideal site for a premium office building that is healthy, connected and responds to Richmond’s growing social community.
The proposal is a sophisticated and contextual 12-storey commercial building, that is both elegant and engaging.
The project aspires to create a ground plane with integrated and active street frontages that are an extension of the public realm, with lane way access that is generous and safe for pedestrians and cyclists. The people friendly street-scape is proposed to house quality retail and hospitality offerings for the enjoyment of tenants and visitors from the surrounding precinct.
