The latest Green Star-rated building, the Gauge at Melbourne’s Docklands, is the next big thing for Lend Lease, which is riding the green style wave after the success of its award-winning building, 30 The Bond, in Sydney. The building was complete in April 2008
Throughout The Gauge, where the focus is on the individual, traditional desks interplay with work style alternatives. The cosy lounge area by the open fire is complete with board games and magazines, it’s a sanctuary for personal time. The environment is diverse managing to keep it social, but professional. The glazed meetings rooms with a natural stream of light, foster collaboration and team work, while elsewhere den-like concrete walls enclose for privacy. This sophisticated result reflects the authenticity and diversity of Melbourne’s commercial and cultural aesthetics.
