Jubilee Place adopts a diagrid structure which generates two technical benefits – one to span over the M7 tunnel beneath the site, and two to cantilever over the adjoining historic Jubilee Hotel to create large floor plates.
The refurbishment and expansion of the Jubilee Hotel is a significant part of the project, both enhancing its offer and joining with the tower’s recessed podium to create an activated arrival experience.
To avoid the tunnel, the tower core forms a linear edge along the north-west side, generating the advantages of contiguous floor plates (with only four internal columns) and minimised western solar impact contributing to the development’s 6 Star Green Star rating.
The lower levels are cross-ventilated with pop-out balconies. The roof plant envelope contains a large restaurant that opens out to expansive gardens with vines stretched between the structure.
The building has been virtually fully let within only a short period of time, testimony to the architectural form, workplace amenity, and sustainability credentials of the design.
