Dunkeld Terrace was designed to accommodate a developer’s brief for high quality sectional-title office space, with flexible interior design options, and the establishment of a design icon for the precinct. This design embodied all criteria, offering a design of repute that would seek to attract investment and a desire to own a part of it.
The design of the office park embraces its primary street frontage, with a central entrance flanked on either side by large glazed wings of office space. These glazed surfaces slope inwards thereby inviting visitors and building users to experience the brightly lit interior atrium with overhead skylights. This atrium houses centrally positioned vertical circulation and service core, onto which all office space is linked, minimising circulation space and maximising sellable area to cater to varied market interest. The ‘terraced’ form of the building caters to the sloping site, providing ample opportunity for exterior balconies, supplemented by a beautiful and lush roof garden space. Glazed surfaces, overhangs, and shading devices are carefully designed to offer maximum energy efficiency while creating an iconic design style. Green spaces are provided on ground level, as well as staggered throughout the facades of the building, thereby reinforcing the terraced aesthetic.
