Future residents, community members and stakeholders this weekend celebrated the official opening of the Jindee land sales office, an innovative and sustainable design unlike standard sales office buildings. The new land sales office is located on the corner of Marmion Avenue and Oceania Avenue in the northern suburb of Jindalee and presents as an open pavilion, featuring floor to ceiling glass and showcasing 180 degree views of the ocean-side location. Following its use as a lands sales office, the state of the art building will be relocated to the coast in the future and repurposed as a community facility. Fiona Roche, Executive Chair of Estates Development Company (EDC) developer of the Jindee estate said that the building raises the bar on sales centre design through high quality architectural response, innovative construction techniques and sustainability measures. “The unique design of the land sales office, like the Jindee estate as a whole, is premised on timeless design principles and a close relationship between the urban and natural environment, respecting the landforms and coastal character of the site,” Ms Roche said. “It has been constructed to integrate seamlessly with its surrounds – the two-storey structure has an inner glass structure overlaid by a timber-clad exterior and features a large roof terrace with panoramic views.” Ms Roche said that sustainable development and environmental performance were key considerations in the building design, which has resulted in a structure that can be disassembled and relocated as required. “The land sales building is ideal for a facility that will service the Jindee community well in the future and, due to its modular design, it can be simply lifted up and reinstalled elsewhere on site,” Ms Roche said. “The design also incorporates sustainable elements throughout including solar passive design features to reduce energy needs, maximise the use of natural light and support cross-ventilation.
