Riverside Quay Southbank EOTF
Riverside Quay, located in Southbank on the Yarra River, is an established landmark destination for businesses that offers a vibrant place to work. Mirvac has a portfolio of three office buildings in Riverside Quay which have been improved by upgrading the End of Trip Facilities (EOTF). Architectus provided the concept design through to construction for a dynamic and contemporary consolidated facility.
The old, poorly lit and outdated basement signage, car park lift lobbies, and ground floor accessible amenities have been designed using graphics and wayfinding as a backdrop to compliment the functional spaces within. The site presented a challenge of low soffit heights in the existing basement, which required careful coordination of services with wider wall cavities to enable services to run through below band beams.
The atmosphere is now vibrant and accommodates the current lifestyle of the users, with electric bike charging points, USB chargers in lockers and horizontal bike parking. In line with future expectations of EOTF, sensor soap dispensers and hand dryers are located above the basins, neatly concealed behind large mirrors.
A variety of materials including timber and textured tile finishes, features plants, motivational neon signage and mirrors emphasises a sense of sophistication and rejuvenation for all users. Lighting is carefully considered with a mixture of wall, ceiling and suspended light fittings to enhance each space functionally and aesthetically.
