77 Gozzard Street
This exciting purpose-designed commercial building, prominently located in Gungahlin accommodates the Yerrabi Ponds Early Learning Centre, Tristar Medical and Pacific Smiles Dentistry. The site is part of the Gungahlin Business Park precinct, previously masterplanned by AMC in 2009 to ultimately accommodate over 50,000m² of commercial office and other uses.
The building has a striking architectural expression to both Gozzard and Swain Streets while effectively accommodating the very different functions and expectations of each tenant. Angled precast panels, face brickwork and metallic cladding are the predominant façade elements with timber cladding to the northern end of the childcare centre offering an interesting, warmer and more natural counterpoint. The main building entry incorporates full height glazing juxtaposed against a striking three storey burnt orange blade wall achieving a strong identity and prominent signage opportunity for the three tenants. Sun shading elements provide visual interest while minimising heat gain. A simple and efficient single level basement arrangement allows convenient, safe and secure access for all tenants and their clients.
