Commercial buildings outside the CBD that adopt an urban typology which responds to the street and urban context are rare. This project demonstrates the benefit of giving preference to the public realm and diminishing the impact of car access and parking. Two restrained and well detailed three-level office buildings are positioned at the street edge, separated by a well-proportioned public courtyard. At certain places the plan inflects inwards, a playful gesture for what could have been a severe façade. A brise soleil of vertical fins provide giving shade and privacy to the tenants, and shade and depth to the building mass. Three35 is smart, professional and considered. The development and its public space contributes an urbane identity to the emerging business character of Lincoln Road.
