Trifos Design Consultants was commissioned by Harbour Royale Development Limited to design a new infill office building for TD Canada Trust, in the heart of downtown Sydney. The proposed site was situated between two, older, existing buildings of varying age and construction integrity. The design solution was to insert a cast-in-place concrete frame into the site, with the requisite underpinning for the adjacent structures. The building, featuring a modest contemporary vernacular, was recessed on the streetfront, so as to create a portico plaza. An elliptical oculus in the roof canopy draws daylight down, into the columned plaza. A soft rose colour was selected for the stucco finish, and was complemented with the trademark, TD green colour for the fenestration and doors.
