Defence Housing Australia, Gungahlin Offices - Canberra

Projects / Commercial / Government

Location Canberra

Situated in a newly developing commercial, entertainment, and residential precinct in the Gungahlin Town Centre, this new government office building for the Defence Housing Agency (DHA) is an iconic presence adjacent to the Canberra Light Rail line and anchors the intersection of Hibberson and Hinder Streets.

A mixed use development of 8,000m² over 3 storeys with a basement carpark for 80 vehicles, the new building presents a continuous retail frontage at ground level to the public streets for food and beverage outlets, which activate the street and integrate with the precinct’s new green links and lane-ways to create a highly active public realm.
Two storeys of highly flexible office space sit above the commercial retail, featuring a light filled and landscaped atrium which promotes wellness and interaction, and a variety of informal breakout and collaboration spaces which support different workplace cultures.
