Award Entry

Elenberg Fraser’s Site One project provides a breathable, flexible working environment for Melbournites 

Built on a highly visible corner site in Melbourne’s Docklands, Site One is a six level commercial building mixing commercial office tenancies, flexible and fully serviced business facilities, and sohos (small office home office) that provide work/ live opportunities.

The main building entry is from Stadium Drive via an open landscaped forecourt, which runs deep into the building via the main lobby. The network of stainless cables that wrap in and over the building forms a rich multi-levelled landscape and recreational space. The north-south arcade links into the main lobby to form a network of vertical voids running across the site, collecting the circulation and entries to the commercial suites. In addition this void network forms fresh air ‘ducts’ across the site for ventilation, giving the arcade a sense of both the internal and the external. Glazed arcades and full height voids are utilised as fresh air, supply and exhaust ‘ducts’ to the individual office shells. This also provides natural ventilation to public areas, ensuring temperature comfort levels are maintained in all public and private spaces. The building façade incorporates operable sections of glazing to aid passive ventilation.
