Cox were engaged to transform an outdated commercial office tower into a contemporary work environment commensurate with the expectations of tenants.
Our first task was to devise concept floor plans for incoming and potential tenants showcasing different workstyles and fit-out options. We selected a palette of materials that gave a sophisticated quality to the space as well as being hardwearing and easy to maintain. Consideration was given to the integration of services and lighting, including a new destination-controlled lift system.
The existing lobby suffered from a mishmash of stylistic influences and had turned its back on its most venerable neighbor, the stately General Post Office. Cox developed a design solution that stripped away the confusing layers and sympathetically integrated with the GPO via a minimalist glass roof canopy. The result is a Cathedral-like space of calm restraint, bathed in natural light.
A new café, concierge and covered pedestrian access connect Brisbane’s impressive heritage with contemporary design and create a welcoming environment for some of Brisbane’s busiest commercial entities.
