Chadstone Link

The “Chadstone Link”, a stylish and weather-protected walkway, links the Chadstone Shopping-Center to the new office tower “Tower 1” and to the new MGallery of the Sofitel-Hotel Group.

On a length of 110 metres, the spaciously designed and multi-purpose area in one of the largest shopping centres of the southern hemisphere provides manifold possibilities for exhibitions and many other events. The 31 differently dimensioned and individually formed timber arches made of glued laminated timber elements by Rubner Holzbau harmonically connect to the arched glass roof of the adjoining building complex and reach, at their highest point, a height of 15 metres. A highly translucent PTFE-cloth positioned on top of the glued laminated timber structure provides for lots of natural light.
