Office Building – Stage 2

The second stage of this modern Herdsman Office development has recently been completed.

Envisaged as a 3 stage development to grow with tenant demand, the building already enjoys high visibility.

With its striking form now fronting the street, the office development commands quite a presence already with its palette and detailing. The inspiration for the design is of amanita muscaria mushrooms growing in grass. This has then been abstracted into various elements of the building, with the ‘grass’ morphing into the lower level elements, mushroom ‘gills’ appearing as car park screen patterns and the mushroom forms across the façade.

While intentionally abstracted and deconstructed to bear little resemblance to mushrooms, the design approach has resulted in a unique and appealing building.
