The site for the this project is located at the award winning precinct at NewActon. More than just a place to live, work or play, NewActon boast a wide mix of residential, commercial, retail, public art and landscapes gardens that leave the impression of living art and design.
After our initial project meeting it was decided that we would focus our area to the foyer of the NewActon East building. NewActon East is an 12,800sqm 8 storey mixed use building and home to the Commonwealth Government ACCC Headquarters, Colliers International state office, a trend grocery store, pilates studio, a gym and 32 boutique apartments. The foyer entry is off 21-23 Marcus Clarke Street and goes through to the landscaped courtyard that is shared with the Diamant Hotel. Every Tuesday the courtyard is used as a unique open air and deck chair cinema experience in the shade of a 100 year old oak tree. The building uses a variety of materials including high performance glass, pre-cast concrete, coloured stainless steel and corten steel.
