Mulgrave Commercial Development
Location:Mulgrave, VIC, AU
Services:Architecture, Project Management
A new commercial development in Mulgrave, this project consists of two levels of basement car parking, end of trip facilities, café and retail spaces, possible childcare and over 30,000m2 of Net Leasable Area.
Spread over two buildings – one 6, the other 8 stories in height – rising to frame the corner and stepping down to meld into the existing character, the two buildings create a beautiful courtyard that acts as a community hub, connecting the café and retail spaces to the exterior.
The project has been designed to enable staging to keep existing tenants on site for the remainder of their lease by utilising a top-down construction method for stage 1. This enables the retention of on grade car parking throughout to meet existing council requirements for the tenancies.
The white toned pre-cast panels to ground level give a nod to the industrial lineage of the local area. Recessing level 1 separates the podium from the tower form, and curved corners to the upper levels soften the towers’ form and create a visually striking building.
