Overlooking Maroondah Highway in Ringwood, the Eastland Office Development features a lightweight modernist design and contemporary addition on top of the existing car park at Eastland Shopping Centre. The design incorporates notched feature precast concrete panels and a bronze glass façade featuring aluminium timber-look vertical fins. The roof houses a large solar array and outdoor deck. It sits alongside the revamped centre with a town square which welcomes visitors through quality retailing, alfresco dining and generous public spaces for a mix of activities. Part of the development is Realm, a library complex which is a significant piece of architecture, designed to be the centrepiece of the new town square precinct.
