Design

Buildings from different eras showcasing various styles line Queens Road. The project, Queens Domain acknowledges the surrounding architectural precinct whilst still expressing contemporary style and showcasing modern construction techniques.

The building respects the setbacks and contours of Melbourne’s skyline with a softened outline and curved façade elements made using next-generation materials, which combine textures and degrees of transparency.

Benefits of using ShapeShell

Doing without the heavy dead weight of concrete, the use of ShapeShell proved an ideal match that offered advantages for the building as a whole such as:

  • A fast install program
  • Fewer columns to support each floor
  • Low post-tensioned slabs
  • The building foundations were able to support another floor
  • Not using the tower crane to install the panels allowed the builder to finish months early
