200 Victoria Parade

200 Victoria Parade

The fluid form and glazed ribbons of this new workplace building are folded and shaped in response to the city form of East Melbourne.

Responding to new and emerging workplace requirements, the building offers a level of sophistication and ability to respond to the changing and varied needs of a modern contemporary workplace with greater flexibility for prospective tenants and users.

A central recess of landscaped north facing terraces and entrance is aligned to terminate Napier Street, a complementary recess on Landsdowne Street creates a vertical corner form to address the corner with Victoria Parade while framing a sculptural stair and scale transition, and stepped landscaped terraces orientate towards Fitzroy Gardens.

The glazed surfaces incorporate thin copper films of varying density to create higher thermal performance and glare control above more transparent clear vision panels. These layered ribbons are adjusted to address the varying environmental conditions of orientation through curved transitions that adjust the high performance and transparency.

The built form sits comfortably within the streetscape in one of Melbourne’s key boulevards and respects views to and from the historic Treasury Gardens to the south. The gateway site’s built response transitions from commercial to residential cleverly within one of Melbourne oldest precincts.
