The structural approach underpinning the design of One One One Eagle Street extends the tower typology and successfully demonstrates the integration and application of scripting techniques in the design of mainstream Australian architecture. The selected algorithm visually references the tower’s immediate fig tree neighbours, placing it in, and of, its site. The subsequent tuning of the structure that follows the algorithm negotiates the difficult site constraints and eccentric core location and reduces the amount of structure up the height of the building. In doing so a strong visual identity for the building is formed, complemented by the selection of glazing system and lighting design. This identity breaks from the immediate Seidler tower neighbours in a way that respects their architecture yet claims a place in a tight proximity generated by the original masterplan.
A lofty foyer with double-level organization invites multiple uses of the ground plane and caters for access through the building and a restaurant. The lobby at second level provides for the commercial tenancies and visually enables orientation of users within the city. At lower levels, these moves stitch together the precinct and enrich the social realm of the city. Optimized floor plates, refined design and holistic sustainability have resulted in a commercial tower that makes a significant contribution to the typology.
