Notable features

Designed as the corporate headquarters for SEC Victoria, the major design objective for this office building was defined as the provision of a state-of-the-art energy-efficient building. It was required to respond in a sensitive manner to its urban context, offering both a high quality working environment and attractive public spaces.

The building consists of a 21-level office tower comprising 18 levels of office space, with ground and first floor levels accessible off a central plaza, and three levels of underground parking.

The building design consists of a series of cubes stacked atop one another, and a setback effect from the river culminating in a spire based on a thin exposed lift core feature.
