The Wills Street Development in Bendigo is a dynamic mixed use building consisting of retail, office and residential components. Utilizing basement car parking and retail tenancies to the ground floor, the design engages with and enlivens the local streetscape. The building facades are a cohesive design that integrates ESD principles. Intelligent sun shades respond to the sun loads by moderating the internal environments thereby minimizing energy use. Setbacks to the east and west facades provide generous private decks to the apartments. The building is a unique response to a complex brief.
