The Cranbourne North strip consists of three separate retail buildings with a carpark located at the rear of the complex. The result is a creative, less predictable commercial architectural design that both complements and provides an interesting contrast to the Avenue Shopping Centre.

Our intention was to create a commercial design that sat comfortably with the existing development but would also become a focal point for the area. While the design kept some of the fundamental elements of traditional retail developments, like the use of large clear glazing to enhance the visibility into the shops.
We wanted to move away from creating a ‘typical’ retail strip and work towards something more distinctive with a minimalist feel through the use of raw materials and large suspended concrete panels. Having large amounts of concrete and suspended concrete panels would also prove to be a challenge structurally as well as financially.
Raw concrete panels, minimal colours and sharp angles add depth to the design
