A feasibility study for a new commercial tower on a key city site, incorporating significant heritage elements to form an activated and usable ‘community’ space at the ground plane. The Tower represents an opportunity for enhanced workplace quality, through the activated ground plane, a range of commercial spaces and easy divisibility for a more diverse tenancy mix, easy connection to external spaces, possibility for vegetation to integrate to the facade design, plate design encouraging disaggregated internal layouts, and controlled cross ventilation via an articulated and operable facade.

Paddington Centro Visioning

Peter Tanevski has demonstrated his unique architectural vision with this project, which reimagines the Paddington Centro retail centre as a lush, inviting and inclusive community garden and shopping experience.


The inhabitants of Paddington sustain small scale businesses and craft oriented trades and focussed on Latrobe Tce since 1970. Since this time the suburb has undergone significant change often shifting towards a community based family unit. The architecture provides a frame for small pockets of craft and café’s. This integration through the spontaneous use of individual space provides a series of interwoven nooks, cafes and rentable spaces divided by places to sit and meet, and flexibility of spaces and the transient places between them. The landscape moves with the building, sloping and dipping to create discreet garden spaces and intimate environments.
