Widely recognised for its exceptional, innovative architectural style, one40william
blends a contemporary design with environmentally sustainable principles
he client brief for one40william was
developed through identifying specific
drivers for change, including economic,
cultural and functional.
The key project requirements were individuality
within customer focus, with links to community,
accountability, innovation, knowledge-sharing
and fostering one business culture.
Design strategies were then developed to
address these specific drivers and requirements.
Through the application of a ‘street’ language,
the design of one40william provided effective
circulation zones, centralised support and
common facilities, provision of diverse work
and meeting settings, and a consistent working
environment through quality, materiality,
amenities and facilities.
The approach to environmentally sustainable
design was to exceed Green Star requirements.
This was achieved through the selection and use
of materials that resulted in longevity and ease
Lighting was selected to define space, and
impact to base building services was minimised.
Space was evaluated with respect to use,
function and acoustic requirements. As a result,
enclosed spaces were deconstructed and designed
to meet their specific needs. This resulted in
reducing full-height walls and opening up rooms,
the use of screens to define space, applying ply
sheeting to only one side of walls where possible,
and reducing the overall use of materials.
A modular plywood construction was
developed to replace the use of gyprock, with
the majority of all materials cut, finished and
prepared off site.
