The Audi Lighthouse is an iconic 16,000 m2 facility located on Sydney’s South Dowling Street. The new eight-level facility is Audi’s new Corporate Headquarters in Australia. The building was designed by Audi’s master architect, Allmann Sattler Wappner and interpreted for Australia by Johnson Pilton Walker.
Responding to the compact urban site, the scheme transforms the traditional car showroom into an interconnected and vital public building. Design innovations include a double-perforated aluminium façade that enables natural ventilation to over half of the building. The spatial interconnectivity and complexity has produced a diverse and active customer experience, providing a high-level of amenity to occupants and an interesting procession of dynamic spaces to delight the visitor.
TSA Management was engaged as Project Manager and was responsible for the administration and coordination of the project from inception to handover of the completed facility. The initial phase involved assistance through the land acquisition, the engagement of the consultant group and management of the development application. This was followed by calling of tenders, evaluation and award and finally, management of the delivery phase, commissioning and defects liability period. The project won the 2010 NSW Architecture Award for commercial projects.
