Brisbane Square stands high

Thursday 02 Mar 2006

The unique design of Brisbane’s new social hub splits the building into two sections using stilts

Designed to be an important social and cultural hub for the city, Brisbane Square is a 37 storey office tower accommodating Brisbane City Council’s offices and library, along with retail facilities and public plaza. It is located six storeys above the ground, to open the street level for public use .Four low-rise sticks provide slashes of colour floating over the urban plaza and the three spider-braced columns that support the cantilevered offices at the top of the tower are a unique feature of the design. There are two distinct sections to the tower: yellow sticks set apart the top ten levels for use by other tenants while a glass façade separates the offices of the city council. The complex is due to open this autumn.
