This project argues for a multiplicity of functions within one building. It is essentially a ten storey office building with accommodation for a tavern at ground level and two double storey apartments on top. The design clearly delineates the different functions within the building and uses them as the means of articulating the architectural expression. The main body of the building is split into 2 distinct vertical masses, something common in Katsalidis designs, one is of rectangular windows and a glazed green stone-like surface, and the other is acurtain walled glazed green glass. This gives a high contrasting visual effect embodied by the same building.
