Tony Owen Architects complete office icon in Queensland 

The Bermuda Point office building is an iconic design solution to a series of very pragmatic design requirements. Bermuda point is a strata commercial building located opposite Bond University on the Gold Coast and enjoys spectacular views across the lake to Arata Isozaki’s university campus. The design solution was to create a large simple floor plate that could be divided into smaller ‘front to back’ office suites. This resulted in all tenancies being ‘through’ units to allow natural ventilation and maximize external and solar exposure. The mild climate allowed that the access walkway be open. The fins provide sun protection to the offices on the western side whilst maximizing the views. They also create a delightful sense of ‘colonnade’ on the open walkway to the east. The building was cost-effective to build, using passive environmental principles combined with standard, robust materials. The iconic shape combined with the use of the coloured fins allows this inexpensive building to make a strong, sophisticated design statement.
