The landmark site, located on the Mandurah Waterfront, provided significant obstacles such as requirements to build above the 50-year flood level, sedimentary soils that complicated the structural capacity of the site, strict setbacks, and a requirement to activate the street level.
Zoning for the site allowed nine floors, however the economic climate presented restrictions to the development. As a solution, Motus suggested the project be developed in multiple stages and occupied progressively over a number of years.
THE MOTUS ADVANTAGE
Motus took advantage of the corner lot by creating an architectural statement at the corner of the building. The perforated screens create interest and intrigue to the building beyond.
