By working closely with the fabricator, the 6mm thick panels when assembled in to there free flowing curves give new definition to streetscape.

A major design feature is the curvilinear screen to the east facade, which presents as Moiré pattern to the public domain, changing pattern, colour and texture when viewed from different angles. Bold colours and textural materials are utilised to provide a rich materiality and honest expression of materials and form. This motif is a design feature throughout, with an adaptation of the same pattern printed on the upper level glass balustrades and features in smaller scale blades and tiles in the lobby walls, to striking effect.
