Architecture, Product & Environment


121 Hoddle Street

Where builders and architects meet, building and architecture are always in conversation. 121 Hoddle reflects this ongoing discourse — and the eternal tensions between form and function, cost and benefit, concept and reality.

In essence a bespoke modular shed, 121 Hoddle is the refined new HQ of a major construction company: McCorkell Constructions. The brief was a new, purpose-designed head office to accommodate 30 staff plus an administration team. The existing site housed a non-conforming industrial warehouse, located on the Hoddle St arterial in an unexpected General Residential zone.
