750 Station Street
Box Hill, 2014
• 750 Station Street is a building where architectural language and elements are married such as to create facades of equal hierarchy and articulation. • All architectural elements intertwine such as to unite and read as a whole, whilst the massing of the building is delineated to ensure the anchoring elements are restricted to the lower 2 levels. • Raw precast elements are adopted to vertical walls with horizontal ribbing such as to ensure the heaviness of the building is restricted to the lower levels. • Balcony and bedroom window screening is proposed to be natural timber panelling and this material compliments the raw precast form and natural white rendering. The building is not competing for presence; rather it achieves it by being neutral and natural.
