CHRISTOU recently joined clients Mirvac in opening the new plaza additions and lobby upgrades at Allendale Square which complete works to the precinct. CHRISTOU were engaged by Mirvac to help reactivate these spaces including re-design of the arcade level underground retail and hospitality with the aim of bringing Allendale Square back to prominence within the CBD.
A refined, transparent approach has been adopted for the plaza additions that respects the elegance of the tower and its position along the Terrace. A suspended glass canopy unifies the various elements, old, and new. The Underground arcade adopts a more playful approach that reflects its subterranean location and food & beverage function.
Despite the differing approaches the overarching philosophy is the same; provide greater clarity of wayfinding and connection, activate through new food and beverage offerings, and re-establish Allendale Square as a meeting place within the city.
