The public realm on Harcourt Road will be greatly enhanced by raising the first floor to a height of 6.15M, setting back the entrance to create a generous 5.35M high covered external space. The 6 storey over ground floor office building is slim, elegant and highly glazed.
The principle materials are natural anodized aluminium and glass. The slender proportions are accentuated by vertical fins which will catch the early morning and late evening light and add crispness and sparkle to the elevation. The predominantly northern orientation of the building to the street means the transparency of the glazed elevation can be exploited to the full. The building is designed with excellent sustainable credentials to LEED Core & Shell standards.
