“55 Corinthian Drive achieves a high standard of amenity for occupants and creates a distinctive built form in a highly visible location.” - Scott Inverarity, Associate Director

The central atrium connects the two uses—a car park building and collegial working environment—into one space. The simplicity of materiality and a restrained palette allows the building to further define its landmark position.

The car park’s perforated metal screen allows for natural ventilation, as well providing the opportunity for texture to be introduced. Sculptural fins cloak the circular structure, allowing the ramp’s form and movement to be acknowledged while enhancing the overall form with a dynamic response.

To improve social awareness and educate end-users, the carbon footprint of the building and live-tracking of energy and water consumption is displayed on a prominent monitor in the atrium, catching everyone's attention that passes through the lobby.
