This project involves the Design and Construction of a new 14 storey commercial office tower at 12 Creek Street in the Brisbane CBD.
The scope includes the demolition of the existing building at the corner of Creek and Elizabeth Streets, and the refurbishment of the existing four (4) level carpark; including adjustments to the existing structure.
The building plan and section is designed to enable a new ‘vertical village’. Above the arrival plaza, nine levels of boutique spaces are linked by an interconnecting stair to create workplace neighbourhoods with characteristics and prospect that takes full advantage of the unique siting.
The facade of the lower six levels, aligning with the fig tree canopy, is designed to allow for outdoor occupation. It is a breathing facade that promotes a genuine connection with the outdoors, with tangible wellbeing benefits.
The upper three levels, culminating with the sky terrace are designed to as a framework for a cascading garden that form a characteristic elevated landscape.
Level 10 is highly bespoke, with a covered outdoor and landscaped sky terrace with views across the golden triangle towards the river to create a memorable work setting.
The uppermost occupied level and roof volume, provides cover to the sky terrace and is shaped and detailed as an elegant beacon, identifying the building from near and far. As a rooftop seen ‘in the round’, it is made from perforated metal using an abstracted fig canopy motif that is also present in other details of the facade.
