Constructed in the early 70’s, Building 1 is a significant work of mid-century modernism, where structural expressionism along with robust and natural finishes are central to the architecture. The refurbishment strategy was to gather rooms around the central core; create open plan to the perimeter, and re‑expose the building structure.
This partial floor refurbishment combines a corporate aesthetic and is distinguished by subtle Chinese influences via an acoustic fretwork, as well the creative use of glass panels to enhance the visual connections between offices.
