Breezway HQ

Cambridge St - Coorparoo

Project Infomation

HThe renewal of the Breezway Australia site in Coorparoo, Brisbane has resulted in a showcase headquarters for the company along with an energy-efficient contemporary building.

HPC worked closely with the Breezway team to create a modern office building with a strong public interface that integrates with the company’s existing inner city production factory.

The resulting development achieved excellence in environmentally sustainable development by:

  • Implementing a dynamic smart building system that integrates louvre windows with the air conditioning system to allow for extended periods of natural ventilation to reduce energy consumption;
  • Optimisation of the orientation of the building to maximise passive thermal control;
  • Expansive east facing windows and a shallow depth plan to ensure natural daylight penetration to all work spaces.
  • Utilisation of lightweight construction techniques;
  • Reuse of waste water from the existing factory powder-coating process;
  • Facilitation of connectivity with the outside environment for the users of the building;
  • Reuse of the existing factory site and infrastructure, minimising extensive demolition and waste of building materials

HPC architects were able to achieve a 4-4.5 star energy rating - reducing energy consumption by almost 60% at a cost of less than 5% of total building costs.
