Large DORMA Revolving Door Provides Memorable and Safe Entrance

DORMA worked with architects, Hassell and main contractor, Brookfield Multiplex to install DORMA's KTC-3 revolving door at 570 Bourke Street in Melbourne's CBD. Originally constructed in 1972, the building underwent a major redevelopment in 2014 to create Melbourne's largest vertically connected office space across 11 levels.

A standout feature of the project is the building's glass atrium. Light from the atrium cuts through all 11 levels to create a bright and light filled space. The atrium also encourages staff collaboration through its inter-connecting stairways.

A highlight of the development was a new entrance lobby, which features an impressive 4200mm diameter x 3500mm high DORMA KTC-3 revolving door. The door features a modern frameless glass central carousel. The large three wing configuration provides an efficient and safe entrance for the building's tenants and also ensures there is plenty of space for wheelchair users and couriers to comfortably use the entrance. This reduces the reliance on adjacent swing doors for service and disabled access that when used impact the air quality and temperature of the lobby and atrium space.

To match the surrounding framing of the podium glazing, the revolving door is finished in a high grade Interpon D2015 powdercoat, to provide a more textured and vibrant entrance.

DORMA's brief was to provide quality hardware which would be hardwearing, assuring longevity and reliability. Working closely with their project partners, DORMA created a functional and memorable entrance to the lobby space and building, using dependable DORMA products and hardware which users can rely on.
