Architect’s choices

The centre’s appearance is instilled with a sense of permanence, making use of a number of high-quality and long-life materials. The bronze facade is contextual, durable and rich in detail to ensure an extended lifetime combined with low maintenance. Inside, exposed in-situ cast concrete ceilings and columns combine with prefabricated aluminium and glass wall components, plastic-laminated wall panels and simple wallboarding coloured white and light grey. We worked closely with the client to incorporate robust, high-quality materials that would be able to withstand frequent cleaning and high traffic.
