Selected in a limited design competition, the Australian Embassy complex houses the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and 13 other government departments and agencies.
The complex comprises Chancery, Executive Residence, 32 staff accommodation units, clinic and recreational facilities, compliant with mandated security.
The Executive Residence is a two-storey building composed of a series of interlocking blocks which expressively articulate the façade with patterns of light and shade.
The staff residences are developed as two undulating two-storey buildings with grass roofs. Set within a private and secure garden setting, the individual houses are stepped in and out to provide identity and articulation to the frontages. Each home is clearly identifiable by individual cladding pattern, colour and abstracted graphic pattern.
