Built in the Nineties period in the Modern style
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.
