Facts

  • Silver reflective glass, rosa beta granite contrasting with rosa limbara granite, preaged copper roofing and intricately designed ground floor details, all make this building an excellent example of the successful re-interpretation of the traditional architectural style.
  • The tower is strongly articulated and presents offering architectural views from various elevations.
  • Although a conventional unitized two-side structurally glazed curtainwall system was used for the ziggurat wall, the granite cladding the concrete structure on the other elevations utilizes a steel strongback system with curtainwall units filling the interstitial area.
  • Awarded 1st prize in the external cladding category of the Marble Architectural Award 1992, the building uses different stones and two different types of glass for the podium and tower sections.
  • The podium is dedicated to high quality boutiques whilst the 35 storey tower is used for offices.
