PTW and LAVA came together to redevelop the 1930s Pitts Street Building and to build a new tower on top of the 1965 Bathurst Street Building, coming together to form the Greenland Centre. Accommodated within the centre are apartments, retail areas and a commercial sector.

Within the lobby are these free forming furniture that adds a sense of elegance to the space. Following a certain organic flow, the walls are all curved, with the ceiling having these organic perforations that gives the users a sense of how to navigate throughout the space. From this flow of movement, ribbon lighting was also introduced to add to the atmosphere of the space.

Material wise, the floor uses a white terrazzo, with the walls being lined with leather and timber battens. The desks within the space also made from timber, with the added effect of being self-illuminating. GRP was also used, especially for its flexibility and strength, enabling the creation of even more fluid and dynamic forms.
