Chow:Hill’s sustainable design of Union Square’s Rabobank paves the way for commercial architecture in Hamilton’s CBD.

Once occupied by rows of Holden cars, polished to perfection and gleaming in Hamilton sunshine, the corner site of Anglesea and Hood Streets in the city’s southern commercial space now boasts the first building in the highly anticipated Union Square development.

Rabobank Centre, previously known as Building F, is a five-storey commercial office building, boasting a dynamic façade designed to maximise natural light and manage solar impacts. Home to key tenants, Rabobank and AA Insurance, this 3,000m² statement design includes a vibrant entry lobby and contemporary courtyard linked to the building’s café.

Chow:Hill’s design of Rabobank Cente has efficiency at its core. Maximising the natural light on this prominent corner site, the building incorporates smart building design features including resource efficiency, energy saving, and natural materials to promote a healthy work environment.

The interior layout of each 780m² floor provides a collaborative and open-plan workspace, with strategic consideration of future workplace innovations.

Rabobank Centre’s iconic corner design has been achieved through the carefully curated use of curtain walls. While striking in appearance, the system plays a key functional role enabling an abundance of natural light to penetrate the interior office space, contributing to the building’s sustainable design.

The building’s interior encompasses meaning pertaining to each of its tenants, with Rabobank incorporating a Dawn Wall artwork display in reception, fabricated in a range of timber louvres, and designed in recognition of the bank’s many customers who are up at dawn on any given day.

Delivered on time and to budget throughout the midst of COVID-19 lockdowns, Rabobank Centre has set the scene for Union Square’s exciting future developments. The Chow:Hill team are now working with development partner, Fosters on Building B – North Corner.
