Tempest Music Ley Street, Como - Completed 2009

Tempest Music, one of the leading musical instrument and sheet music stores in Australia, is a combined retail and office development, which maximises the development potential of its site and commercial exposure to Manning Road.


The design concept has the ground floor retail component of the project contained within a solid mass, maximising display space, while the first floor administration floats above in a permeable and panoramic composition offering views and ample natural light. The curved roof, reflecting Como’s riverfront connections, provides large overhangs for shade and shelter.
