About Brookfield Place
The tower at Brookfield Place embraced the aspirations of the building’s owner to provide a flexible collaborative workplace for its occupants. Knowledge sharing and collaboration underpinned the design philosophy. This approach resulted in a side-core commercial tower with complete visual connectivity across the open plan floors, which is further reinforced by the vertical connections through generous stair and void zones. This offset core further protects the enclosed space by buffering the façade against the adverse northern sun and the associated solar heat gain. Externally, the expressive structural east and west exoskeletons create the distinctive tower aesthetic. The vertical expression of the tower structure accentuates the height of the building, which terminates in an elegant tapered structural roof crown. At the ground plane, the connection with an intimate, human-scaled public realm was integral to the architectural design approach. This was achieved by way of discrete entry plazas surrounded by mature trees, integrated landscape, and passive seating spaces.
