Global architecture practice Hassell has received development approval for the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank office scheme in Adelaide, Australia.

The A$105m project will involve construction of a ten-storey tower that will house the bank and a café on the ground floor.

The site currently houses a six-level office building and a two-storey church hall, which are expected to be demolished to make way for the new build.

The design involves horizontal bands of frameless glazing with oscillating canopies projecting randomly from each floor level, according to architectureanddesign.com.au.

The white edged canopies will be made of perforated metal soffits, and integrated colour-up lighting will offer sun shading and a distinctive night appearance to the building.

The development assessment panel praised the practice’s design for its approach – it is aiming to achieve the Australian Building Greenhouse five-star rating.

The proposal overcame an access arrangement concern raised by state heritage in which service vehicles would reverse close to a listed day school house of the Bethlehem Uniting Church.

The practice’s proposal of bollards for combat the concern was considered by the panel.
