about the project

COMPLETE. The eye catching design of 18 Marcus Clarke is reflective of Walter Burley Griffin's original geometric plan for the City of Canberra, Australia's capital city. The site forms the central portion of Block 16 Section 61 and the building was designed to relate to nearby older buildings whilst presenting a modern composition. The development is carefully set within the site to allow an extensive open space treatment, creating an integrated public domain around the building with an emphasis to Marcus Clarke Street and William Clemens Street.


The elevation to Marcus Clarke Street features a horizontal bladed wall to Level 8, highlighted by a projecting central portion of the curvilinear glass facade and a specially designed winter garden that will capture maximum natural light and assist with natural ventilation. The carefully crafted facade elements help reduce the scale and articulate the building form. Expansive window treatments - including a sill height set at 450mm - were designed to offer views from the building and provide excellent connections to the surrounding environment.

The building is fully leased to the Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries and was on-sold to Industry Superannuation Property Trust.
