Project summary

Designed in a true collaboration between the Client, the Builder and the Architect, the Proprietary Street Office & Warehouse Development is a needle in an industrial haystack of traditional commercial and industrial developments. The core design principle for the development came about from a discussion with the Client, who presented a series of photographs that were taken during their time spent travelling in New York.
The commercial offices that frame each end of the development take the embodiment of the industrial nature and function of the site even further, through the incorporating of features such as exposed structural members, cantilevered overbuilds and a robust material selection. And in case the Client’s love and passion for all things industrial isn’t immediately recognised as you travel through the site, you can’t miss the Boeing 747 Aeroplane Cowl that you walk through as you enter Reception, leaving visitors awestruck in its wake.

This was inspired by time my wife and I spent in New York. We discovered and photographed a series of the brown brick warehouses, including the 1914 Chelsea Warehouse that was recently adapted to house a new cantilevered addition that floats over the industrial building below. We showed our photographs to the Elevation team as inspiration for our new development, and they channeled this look and feel to a such a high standard that when I arrive at my Office each day, I feel like I’m right back there in my ‘Little New York,’ nestled amongst the Bulimba Creek bushland.
