The architectural practice of Woods Bagot designed the new office for the National Australia Bank and it is located on the 700 Bourke Street in Docklands, Melbourne, Australia between the Southern Cross Station and the Etihad Stadium as well as between the already existing workplaces of the bank on the same street.

Since the site has a triangular layout, the predominant geometrical shape is that of the triangle with the atrium in the center and three fissures that go down the façade into the architectural mass. The panels on the façade are colored to adapt to the amount of sunlight outside, varying from red to orange, yellow and green.

The ground floor is completely open to the public featuring retail outlets, several seating areas and cafes as well as a multipurpose auditorium with its own amphitheater. The atrium leads to the rest of the projects and it divides into eight zones which can accommodate up to 50 people further divided into areas for social and learning environments.
