Orbis Façade, South Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
ARM (Ashton Raggatt McDougall)
This funky project turns the traditional building façade on its head and, in doing so, creates a unique series of manufacturing and construction challenges. Working with both negative and positive space, the façade projects into and out from the building structure – requiring both light weight and enormous strength. The result is an extraordinarily dramatic “deconstructed” face presented to neighbourhood.
