Acknowledgment of contrasting conditions and embracing their intersection.
1000 La Trobe Street is located on the banks of the oldest and largest single surviving dock in the world, Victoria Dock, housing four main railway lines in the 1920s.
Located on a site where the city transitions to water, a holistic design response was needed to create a precinct and not solely a building. The design vision references the embedded layers within the site; a place of cross roads, history and progress.
Talk to Bruno Mendes about 1000 La Trobe Street
A community-centric approach was utilised to create public space, fostering notions of place and experience for a diverse user group. By acknowledging the contrasting conditions and embracing their intersection, we were able to create The Crossing.
The design maps the original railway tracks on the elevation, resulting in an angulated and articulated façade.
Separated into two massing elements, there are sections where the railway tracks converge and other elements where the railway lines are abstracted onto the tower with more angled and rigid lines.
The 17 storey commercial tower sits on a podium clad in zinc, while the interface between street and site offers permeability through to the building and the wider urban fabric.
