Stretching 92 storeys above the southern bank of the Yarra River, Eureka Tower built by Grocon is the one of the latest editions to Melbourne’s sky line. With its clean lines and chiselled aesthetic, and measuring up at just over 300m tall, the multi award winning tower is destined to become a Melbourne icon.
The ‘Skydeck’, developed by Redrock Leisure and designed by Maddision Architects, includes the ground level foyer / pavement area, Level 88 Observation Deck, and Level 89 Bar / Function area. At 285m above street level, the observation deck is Melbourne’s highest publicly accessible vantage point.
When developing the concept for the observation deck area, Maddison Architects, were keen to create an open feel in which the visitor felt engaged with the view. To achieve this, Ronstan Tensile Architecture was contracted to supply and install a Carl Stahl X-TEND stainless steel mesh barrier screen, running floor to ceiling, to replace the glass in two areas of the Level 88 façade.
