The Link

The previously outdated Milton Green office precinct in Brisbane was due for a much-needed facelift. Architects, Lat27, were engaged to develop a public realm master plan, which has now achieved its purpose of creating a remarkable space to retain existing and attract new tenants within Brisbane’s competitive commercial office space market.

Since its completion in 2017, the Link’s vibrant multi-functional space is continually enjoyed by visitors and office park tenants alike.

Interconnected Spaces

A key part of the master plan was a commitment to upgrade the office parks public amenities. To achieve this, it was designed as a series of connected spaces with cyclist and pedestrian linkages. Complete with a coffee kiosk, seating areas, wifi, decorative catenary lighting and subtropical plantings surrounded by a lush canopy of existing mature fig and jacaranda trees. An attractive area with a sense of community was achieved for the office precinct.

A Splash of Colour

The project utilised our blackbutt timber Click-on battens throughout the coffee kiosk and restrooms’ exteriors. The vertical iteration of battens provides an eye-catching pattern and a great deal of beauty to the outdoor area – something our battens always deliver. Mixed in with the timber battens were purple aluminium battens (provided by us with a mill finish before being powder-coated). This mix of materials and finished worked perfectly throughout the space, with purple being the main theme.
