The Victorian Automative Chamber of Commerce (VACC) may be an organisation with a long and rich history but its new North Melbourne headquarters is very much inspired by the future.
The building’s design is at the forefront of modern sustainable technology, making it a fitting companion for the fast-moving and ever changing industry located within its walls.
Subtle nods to the automotive industry are peppered throughout the building’s architecture including a façade inspired by the grille of the classic Ford Mustang.
The resulting distinctive architectural language supports a passive environmental strategy to reduce direct solar heat gain.
Inside a striking atrium rises through the building’s core to create a sense of grandeur upon arrival and invite abundant natural light into the building.
