Presented by Project Designer and Director Stephen McGarry, the tour will showcase the project’s passive design measures and ethos, particularly the diaphanous double skin facade to the north, which is used to control heat and ventilate the floor plates with maximum daylight in the tenancies.

The tour will also highlight the holistic planning of the building and showcase its southern façade, which acts as a permanent canvas for a commissioned First Nations artwork that respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land.

Guided tours run 10:30 am, 11:45 am, 1:30 pm and 2:45 pm, running for 45 minutes in groups of 25. While bookings are not required, tour group capacity is limited and operates on a first-come, first-served basis.
