Charter Hall’s 100 Skyring is a
new office development that has already created a prominent gateway to the
Gasworks precinct with its striking exterior design.
Part of the continued evolution
of Brisbane’s near city office market, the $175 million 12-storey building on
Newstead’s Skyring Terrace features large, campus-style floor plates to foster
greater staff collaboration.
Charter Hall Regional Asset
Manager Belinda Kalinin explains the 100 Skyring project responds to the
growing demand for buildings featuring an inspiring workplace design to foster
an environment that encourages employee performance, motivation and
satisfaction. 100 Skyring’s 2,200sqm floor plates have been orientated to
maximise natural light and allow for ultimate workspace planning flexibility to
increase interaction, efficiency and collaboration.
Given the building’s close
proximity to the Brisbane River and Gasworks’ new dining, lifestyle and
entertainment precinct, 100 Skyring also creates opportunities for tenants to
work and play. Building tenants on all floors have an amazing view of the
Brisbane River and beyond thanks to an east-facing, gently-curved façade.
100 Skyring has been designed to
connect and engage with the precinct’s open green space, cafés, restaurants and
other amenities, extending the workspace outdoors.
ML Designs Senior Project
Manager Paul Hanley said they designed 100 Skyring’s exterior to become a captivating
focal point for people travelling along Breakfast Creek Road towards the city.
A 206m-long artwork wraps around the two-level podium car park floors, running
along three sides of the building and consists of approximately 2,000
interlocked, metallic panels.
Renowned Brisbane artist Daniel
Templeman designed the piece and drew inspiration from the illumination of the
neighbouring historic Gasometer frame and city streets. The artwork not only
gives the building greater texture and visual interest, but also cleverly
screens the building’s podium car park.
The 100 Skyring project is
expected to reach practical completion in August this year with office space still
available for lease.
