Appreciations towards Gray Puksand for providing the following description:


▼办公楼外观,exterior view of the office building

This seven-level office building was designed for Crestwood Developments to engage and excite the residents of Sunshine whilst providing quality workspace to the major tenant VicRoads. Located on a critical axis and an island site a short walk from Sunshine Railway Station, the robust building stands proud in a predominantly low-rise retail strip and will be the catalyst for redevelopment of the entire precinct into a priority zone within the Melbourne metropolitan area.

▼场地中保留的树木与建筑形成了一个友好的步行环境,the existing trees and building provide a pedestrian friendly environment

人们可以从各个角度欣赏建筑雕塑般的立面,建筑响应了Brimbank市议会对吸引位于狭长场地两端的Clarke和Withers街道行人的期望。白色预制混凝土板充满动感并与主要租户Vicroad立面保持一致。纹理与形体在消减景观尺度方面发挥着不可或缺的作用,位于停车场之间的桉树和在Sunshine 被开发为住宅工业区之前就存在的橡胶树为遮阳板的颜色选择带来了灵感。

The sculptural façade is designed to be viewed from all aspects and responds to the Brimbank City Council’s desire for pedestrian activation at Clarke Street and Withers Street at each end of the lengthy site. The white precast concrete panel design talks to movement and aligns with Vicroads, the major tenant. While texture and form play an integral part in softening the impact of its scale in the landscape, it was the significant eucalyptus tree which sits in the adjacent carpark and the acknowledgement of gum trees that would have been in the area prior to development of Sunshine as a residential and industrial neighbourhood, that inspired the colour selections for the powder coated sunshades.

▼建筑在场地内后退,提供了城市公共空间,the setback provides public space for the city

The tree’s sheer size and importance to the local community also meant that the building had to be set back from the title line to protect its roots. This architectural solution was key to enhancing a sense of arrival for staff and visitors and reinforces the notion of movement and robustness. The setback also provides additional public realm to activate this critical axis in this Sunshine precinct. By providing a more pedestrian friendly environment around the VicRoads building, and a green corner which obscures the service needs of the site, this development sets the benchmark for the future evolution of this vibrant western suburb.
