Notable features

The ANZ world HQ is a postmodern development that involved integration with historic neo-gothic buildings.

The ANZ World Headquarters building is essentially curtainwalled, however it features zig zag tracery which presents like gothic arched structural supports. These structural supports project out and add enormous depth and complexity to the ANZ building facade. The step-back massing effect effect culminates in a gable like structures intersecting on a pitched roofline which covers over the cooling tower. The effect is of a skyscraper Tudor gothic. This gives ANZ World Headquarters building a picturesque mass and landmark qualities. A subtle weather spire sits discretely atop the roof.

Architect: Peddle Thorp

My work embodies an appreciation of the beauty and wonder of life that surrounds me. The images in this gallery portray everyday subjects that captivate me, bring me joy or that strike a nostalgic cord. My art tends to be aesthetic in nature and reflects what I find visually and emotionally stirring. For me photography is a meditative process that awakens my senses, induces a sense of inner calm and allows me to completely lose myself in the present moment.
