Showcasing the creation of a new life for an old building, Landini Associates brief was to restore the former Collingwood industrial warehouse into the new headquarters base for T2.
The aim was to respect and celebrate the original building, while creating a dramatic statement to represent the T2 company’s ethos. Throughout the building, timber beams, columns and brick walls were sandblasted to bring back their original finish whilst a few scuffs and marks are kept as a remembrance of its history. This was contrasted with T2’s trademark dark, streamlined pallet.

“Modern day works of architecture look like computer dreams, almost as if the machine were capable of designing a world of self-suffi cient forms on its own, without people being involved. Architecture without people or automatic writing in space, places with no need to actually be inhabited. Equivalent architecture that is self-generated, just like those generators
of random poems, which, given a certain number of words, create combinations forming haiku, which are often actually quite pleasant; likewise, generative music has been around for quite a while already, with a computer taking a certain number of “scenes” to develop a sequence of music lasting minutes or even hours.
