About The Oracle Hinterland Tower

The Oracle towers are part of a mixed-use development of office and retail with two residential towers rising above. The site has been subdivided into a number of external streets that provide permeability and pedestrian access to all areas of the site. The overall form of the towers draws inspiration from the dramatic and dynamic hi-energy surf beach that they front. This form is carried down to the ground and is connected to the street by the use of stratified canopies which reflect the flowing spandrels of the towers.

The fenestration of the towers comprises pre-cast concrete panels, aluminum louvers and glass balustrades which are continuous around the perimeter of the building. The floor plans of the building respond to climate by reducing the depth of the balcony where solar penetration is desired and deeper where shading is preferred. The building’s fenestration can be read as a reflection of the building’s orientation; north-western corners are heavily shaded by solid balustrades and aluminum louvers whereas eastern façades are simply provided with glass balustrades.
