CHARACTER & SCALE

Brisbane has few brick buildings remaining in its CBD. One of the streets that this high-rise commercial office tower addresses is fortunate to have a number of them, as does the immediate precinct. Building in brick offered a way of being contextual through material.

While characterised by a slick and colourful glassy facade, this project uses tactile concrete and masonry elements to give contrasting character and scale, including an embellished masonry screen protecting four levels of glass-skinned boardrooms.
