A new destination for Canberra

Our masterplan for Bruce injects a series of highly crafted mixed-use buildings and townhouses into the Canberra market. The striking forms strengthen the urbanscape, through the creation of sky terraces and a vibrant public promenade designed in a bush setting. Modern offices saturated with natural light and air and a ground floor abuzz with the spice and flavour of cafes, restaurants, bars and speciality retail – A new destination for Canberra!

A design collaborative inspired by the vision and experience of TP Dynamics & AURORA Design.

180 Daisho aerial photography

Crone recently engaged a photographer to take aerial photographs of 180 Daisho, a 60,000m2 commercial office tower located in Ann Street, Brisbane. 180 Daisho is a 34 level, 6 Star Green Star office tower with a striking super graphic of the Brisbane River designed to the north east facade.

180 Daisho is ambitious, gutsy and a highly intelligent building. The tower will be Brisbane’s first, 6 Star Green Star V3 certified office building and is aiming for a 5.5 star NABERS Energy rating. This is the highest sustainability rating attainable through the Green Building Council of Australia’s rating system and described as World Leadership. Crone worked closely with Floth Engineers to design a very efficient, world class, sustainable building.

The buildings facade features a dramatic motif of the Brisbane River which is highly recognisable from a number of vantage points throughout the city and becomes a theme throughout the development.

The structural design is innovative. By utilising a side core to the office floor plate, we were able to straddle the Brisbane railway lines that run directly under the site. Crone worked with Arcadis structural engineers to develop the structural system, which uses in part, a series of large diagonal trusses to support the typical floor plates. This strategic thinking helped unlock the opportunities of the site. The resulting floor plates are regular in shape, open planned, saturated with light and with spectacular views of the city.
