Maximising
Minimalism

“I have a reverence for simplicity in design, to make every line count. The process is driven by distillation : The continual layering and editing of influences and ideas, governed by the timeless elegance of economy — just as we find in nature.”

— Steve McFarlane, Office of McFarlane Biggar

The Complexity
of Simplicity

  • 22 gauge steel, pre-formed and pre-painted metal panels with varied profiles to create a corrugated texture cladding the entire building
  • Angular floor-to-ceiling double glazing for subtle animation of the facade through changing reflections (over the course of the day)
  • Front-mounted tempered glass panels with an extruded aluminium frame and a graphic frit to obscure the slab sledge
  • Deep balconies and roof overhangs to minimize solar gain from the westerly sun
  • Pressure treated western red cedar soffits
  • Cast-in-place architectural concrete

Bringing the
Outside In

“There’s no hard line between architecture and interiors. Rather, we approached the designs holistically — as one continuous thought. Concrete, stone, and wood extend from the outside in. It’s the same simplicity of palette, adapted to showcase their natural colours and textures for a warm and restful environment.”

— Michelle Biggar, Office of McFarlane Biggar

Metal Craftsmanship

“We are constantly inspired by the potential of transforming the ordinary through innovation and collaboration. Metal cladding is everywhere, but here, we worked closely with the fabricator to rethink the entire skin of the building, crafting a dynamic surface that subtly changes appearance as the sun tracks across the sky.”

— Steve McFarlane, Office of McFarlane Biggar
