Bam Ar­chi­tects to move to Cen­tury City to max­imise client con­ve­nience

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

AWARD-win­ning architectural firm, Bam Ar­chi­tects, is to move to Cen­tury City where it has bought a two-storey stand­alone of­fice block.

The eye-catch­ing build­ing forms part of the Man­hat­tan mixed-use precinct now near­ing com­ple­tion.

The 374m² of­fice block will over­look the largest pub­lic park in Cen­tury City.

Prin­ci­pal ar­chi­tect, Chris Bam says the firm has been in its premises in The Palms Cen­tre in Wood­stock for 16 years and it was time for a change.

“Cen­tury City is ex­tremely well lo­cated and is good for our clients.

“It is a de­light­ful precinct and of­fers a great life­style with ev­ery con­ceiv­able amenity right on the doorstep.”

Bam Ar­chi­tects has de­signed a num­ber of build­ings at Cen­tury City in­clud­ing the Vir­gin Ac­tive gym and The Quays mixed-use devel­op­ment.

The firm’s lat­est de­velop- ment in the precinct is The Ter­races res­i­den­tial com­plex un­der con­struc­tion with the en­tire devel­op­ment of 144 units hav­ing been sold to an in­vest­ment com­pany.

The Man­hat­tan precinct com­prises Man­hat­tan Tow­ers – a 15-storey block of 82 apart­ments set over a ground floor com­mer­cial com­po­nent in­clud­ing a restau­rant and con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties – and Man­hat­tan Wharf­side – a strip of sin­gle and dou­ble-storey apart­ments fronting on to the Grand Canal, which were com­pleted a num­ber of years ago.

The lat­est ad­di­tion to the precinct is the mixed-use Man- hat­tan Quar­ter which com­prises 63 apart­ments over­look­ing the Grand Canal, of­fices in­clud­ing those for Bam Ar­chi­tects, a restau­rant, a large park and a crèche for 160 chil­dren.

This precinct is now near­ing com­ple­tion with Bam’s of­fices sched­uled to come on stream at the end of March.

Bel­lville Medi­clinic Louis Leipoldt has had a facelift by be­ing clad with new build­ing ma­te­rial, Magnaboard.
