Text description provided by the architects. Project picks up its expression from the spirit of flower, a strong form that hovers above the ground and rests on slender supports. Slopes and berms dematerialise the wall to accent the hovering forms of metal sheet roof resting on slender steel columns. Given the slopping nature of eucalyptus wooded site and the large volume and scale of the required warehouse spaces, the programme is partly submerged so that it does not harshly impose on site.

Public related programs such as office and canteen spaces are put towards the south of the site as pavilions perched on large rocky outcrop. An Amphitheatre styled stepped auction hall is located towards the centre of the site utilizing natural slope. The service zone which consists of large storage and distribution areas are treated as non building partially buried towards the north end. Clear Glass forms the infill between the floor and the roof planes, scaling the pavilion down and maintaining transparency between the inside and outside across the verdant site, thus allowing the user a constant awareness of light and landscape. Steps set between rock forms and metal bridges connect the user part of the complex.
