“This building is designed to meet the needs and expectations of new workplace environments now and into the future.”

– Matthew Chai, Architect

Adapting to the surroundings

The structure is positioned between Burnley Station and Richmond’s renowned Swan Street. A vibrant new laneway and primary entrance connect the two facades. Each detailed side of the building adapts to its orientation and the local climate, promoting environmentally sustainable design for both the architecture and the workspace it houses.

To counterbalance the industrial feel, earthy, warm touches have been thoughtfully incorporated into the interior design, though a selection of timbers, terracotta hues and visible landscaping.
These elements soften the space and create a comfortable ambiance, making it a welcoming environment for both workspace and EOT ‘end-of-trip’ facilities.
