Designed in association with Kane Constructions, Conrad Gargett’s design proposal for the $52 million energy-efficient General Electric Headquarters was announced as the winner from a limited competition.
The design of the six level building and surrounds focuses on legibility, intuitive wayfinding, pedestrian amenity and on maximising visual and physical connection to the adjacent 22 hectare regional town park.
Connectivity to the Robelle Domain Parklands drives the overall design intent for the building. The L-shaped building for the General Electric Headquarters arcs around a north facing courtyard creating a unique sense of arrival and offering occupants adequate natural light and views of the parklands and landscaped plaza below.
Intended to be developed as a five-star Green Star project, the planning is for an integrated workplace with the latest in contemporary interiors applied to the fitout.
