Queensberry Office Tower

Š2012 B y V ivian J ohnny

Queensberry Office Tower The brief is to design a high rise office building at the corner of Queensberry Street and Bouverie Street. Being the only tower on the site and due to its dominating height, the building is divided into three part and public facilities are inserted in between such as food hall and meeting rooms. In order to maximize floor space to accommodate office spaces in the building, lift core and services are pushed to the side of the building. The architecture of the office tower expresses the formality of the program through its symmetrical faรงade element and muscularity of the building. The convex elements on the faรงade winged out to improve the ventilation of the office spaces and act as shading elements for the floors below. While the concave elements on the faรงade act as seating spaces for the offices and at the same times, it is also a document storage space.
