From a small start on the Gold Coast, Billabong grew into one of the world’s best known surf wear labels, with outlets around the globe.
Their brief to HHH Architects was to accommodate five existing premises into one single location taking the company’s headquarters into the new millennium, whilst maintaining the integral soul of Billabong.
Over 1.4 hectares of development encompasses logistics and manufacturing warehouses, corporate administration and a spectacular flagship retail showroom.
The use of rammed earth, extensive timber and iconic roof shapes reflects and strengthens the brand values, as well as providing a very unique building with icon status on the Gold Coast.
