Santos Place is a 41-storey office project in the Brisbane CBD which uses a new covered pedestrian laneway as its preferred address. The ground level has a conspicuously people friendly setting that signals a less corporate way of developing the city.
Bicycle parking, boulder walls for sitting, and dangling lanterns suggest that an alternative gentleness might accompany big buildings rather than the singular splendour of massive glass and gleaming stainlessness. Perhaps making an ‘eco’ building, (in this case a 6 star ‘green star’ performer) is as much about incorporating local timber craft and stone as it is about deploying sophisticated engineering systems.
