category: workplace, unbuilt

project name: 23 Aplin Street

location: Aplin Street, Cairns City

size: 2090sqm

23 Aplin Street is a sound, well managed B class office building with 2090sqm over two levels.  The owners have enjoyed a long term government tenant occupying the entire building.  As lease renewal is a time for all tenants to consider whether to further occupy the space, timing was right for the owners to consider an upgrade to entice the ongoing use by the current tenants.

Myriad has developed a series of modifications to raise the quality of the workspace to the highest level in the marketplace; this was driven by the goal to enable improvements in work flow & communication; along with a significant elevation of the ambience to the gathering and relaxation spaces.  The central zone, flooded with daylight, supports social cohesion and is a forum for causal meetings. A soft palette of natural materials, balanced with fine black metalwork, provides a comforting treatment to the new central stairwell & atrium.
