North Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Located in the centre of North Sydney, immediately adjacent the proposed Victoria Cross Metro Station, 1 Denison Street is a new, premium grade commercial office tower aspiring to a 5 Star Green Star and 5 Star NABERS energy rating.
Our aim is to contribute to the public realm of North Sydney with a podium that presents a human scale to the surrounding laneways, and above which sits a timeless and efficient office building with first rate commercial floor plates.
Bates Smart designed the podium as a truly a connective space between the public realm and the private realm of the workplace. This is a place where people are comfortable to meet, work and socialise – an active laneway extending the working environment.
This highly open and permeable space is an expression of the modern workplace as work becomes less private and more integrated into the city; responding to the casual nature of today’s tech savvy generation.
In the office we have created a highly flexible, and contiguous floorplate, based on a side core typology. The floorplate maximises connectivity, encouraging communication and collaboration, which are the hallmarks of optimum contemporary workplaces.
The facades respond to the context through a simple, elegant and timeless design that distinguishes itself from the rectilinearity of existing nearby commercial buildings. The building’s unique form and geometry is derived through careful consideration of how a major tower can reduce its impact on the amenity of its neighbours.
