One40 William Street.....

Let me start off by saying I am so happy that from August, Aimee (my daughter) will be working in this building.  She and I are happy for completely different reasons, she because as this new building is built directly above the new train station she will be able to come straight in and up to her office, not to mention that she will be in the very close proximity to an abundance of fabulous shopping opportunities (Heaven help her bank balance!). Me because this is no ordinary building, it has been awarded a 4.5 Star NABERS (NABERS Rating) and a 5 Star Green Star (Green Rating) which all boils down to the fact that it is probably the healthiest building in Perth to work in. I felt the first picture translated well in black and white (sorry VP) to show the back view of the building, the central lift shaft and brilliantly designed air management systems, and the front is the much more glamorous image of fashion shop facades. The building she has worked in for the last five years is known as a 'sick' building and when vacated will have millions of dollars spent on it to make it suitable for it's next occupants, government ministers....enough said!! Hurray for One40 William St. and many healthy years ahead.....!

  10. Pretty interesting design. Those things on the left resemble heat sinks, like you would find on top of a computer's CPU. Maybe that's exactly what they are.

  13. I was about to suggest that this building may have been designed specifically to offset the energy usage at Green House, but having just read more on their web site, it would seem both are eco-friendly:-) B&W was a good choice again, I reckon Grace.

  17. Dont't be sorry for me and the B&W, you have so many reason to be happy for your daughter and even for this beautiful and healthy building. The pictures are both great either, but it is obvious which one is my favorite!

  18. Shopping is great, but I love the drama of the rear facade.

  19. Healthy buildings should be the concern of every company executive but, sadly, it isn't. This is a beautiful building.
