A Grade Building
The Nishi building is an award-winning sustainable building in Canberra’s NewActon design precinct. Designed by world-renowned architects Suppose Design Office (Tokyo) and Fender Katsalidis Architects (Melbourne), the Nishi Building was awarded the International Project of the Year award at the 2015 Building Awards in London.
Molonglo’s Nishi Building is a mixed-use development made up of shops, commercial offices, apartments and a hotel. While this sounds jumbled, the spatial arrangement is simple in plan and section: public functions, including shops and the hotel, occupy the lower floors, while private offices and apartments are situated above. It is the antithesis of a typical commercial, residential or hotel development. It favors messiness, localism and pluralism over the expected and generic. In such a way, it is quickly leading, and emblemizing, change in Australia’s capital.
Constructed of 1,600 metres of steel, mesh and Australian blackbutt, the building‘s green credentials include high performance glazing, solar power and a blackwater recycling plant. Over 90 plant boxes of varying species surrounding the façade.
The building boasts spectacular views across Lake Burley Griffin, the National Museum of Australia, the Telstra tower and the new Parliament House. Private sector building occupants include Clayton Utz, State Super and Molonglo Group. A number of Australian Commonwealth Government departments are also tenants, including Safe Work Australia. The complex includes a Hotel, Cinema, Gym, Yoga, Library, Salon, Café and underground car park. Tenants are only moments away from major attractions such as the Nishi Gallery, The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, Floriade.
The Nishi building is also within walking distance to The Australian National University, Supreme Court of the ACT, Canberra’s city centre shopping centre, various entertainment venues, and multiple banking facilities.
