The building is curve linear in form. The east-west axis of the building is relatively narrow which minimises extreme morning and afternoon solar heat gains. This also allows for both the east and west facades to have a strong presence onto both Commonwealth Avenue and Forester Crescent. The sweeping curtain glass wall reflects its surrounds, which helps create cohesion between the site and building. The buildings internal layout utilises an open office plan concept. All enclosed offices are located along the south wall of the building with open offices adjacent lining the northern wall of the building.

KINGSTON, HIGHGATE LANE M IXED USE DEVELOPMENT

03

The redevelopment was to take place between the block fronting Giles street with rear boundaries to Highgate Lane. Retention of the existing shop facades fronting Giles Street is to be included in design thought as they are heritage listed. The Kingston centre is a large mixed used group centre in Inner South Canberra and is a signiďŹ cant dining and entertainment hub. The intentions of this development are to activate Highgate lane by making it an attractive and safe place to visit. The design endeavours to draw people in to and around the Kingston centre making it a more vibrant and social area.


04 This building sits as a separate building to the production area that was produced by Glenn Murcutt. It consists of a more private space for storage consisting of both barrel storage during the fermentation process, and case storage for the bottles. A laboratory and office space is also located in the ground floor. The first floor is a public space that consists of a cellar door area and restaurant. A commercial kitchen that can cater for up to 150 people is also located on this level. The building sits adjacent to the dam and is elevated high enough to have panoramic views across Lake George. The building strives to complement Murcutt's building by using a linear building form, and the same roof profile.
