New Quay Promenade, Melbourne, VIC

Construction time: 8 months
This winning design from an architectural competition presented a considerable construction challenge. Icon Co and SJB FKA Architects worked together to develop a solution. The entire structure, cladding and services of this cantilevered ‘folly’ were manufactured off-site and then craned into position. The trick was achieving perfect integration of the pre-assembled building. The Royal Australian Institute of Architects recognised ICON’s efforts with a commercial architecture award.
