The new roof to the contemporary building has a compounding curve and feature transition to the façade junction. The soffit is exposed class 1 concrete, and all thermal performance occurs on top of the concrete form.
The completed project showcases the beautiful, restored heritage features of the existing building. Original elements such as the lift motor assembly, timber trusses and beams are exposed, the original building signage and historical fabric were all restored and now provide the feature of the heritage building. The old and new meet seamlessly and complement each other in this amazing, inspiring, and unique development.
The project was crowned the joint winner at the 2021 MBA Excellence in Construction Awards in the category of Commercial Buildings (Up to $50,000,000).
