Ironbank’s front facade offers retail space and has been built to respect the height of the Victorian and Edwardian buildings that surround it. The rear of the building is a seven-story office tower composed of a rusty facade and container-like blocks stacked at skewed angles. While the front respects the historic nature of the street, the back contrasts with a very industrial, utilitarian and functional aesthetic and program.
The innovative and automatic car stacking system parks 95 cars underground with a robot, where 25 of those spaces are designated for small cars. Energy-efficient design and lighting lower energy use and create a more comfortable environment for the employees and visitors to the building.
