NSW Architecture Awards: a highly refined and resolved interior

Corrs Chambers Westgarth

Interior Architecture Commendation

The design for Corrs Chambers Westgarth’s Sydney workplace won an Interior Architecture Commendation, awarded by the Australian Institute of Architects NSW chapter awards.


Corrs Chambers Westgarth reflects a timeless, innovative and immersive experience for staff and clients. Inspired by a strong sense of place, the workplace is sensitively integrated into the Quay Quarter Tower, offering some of the most iconic, uninterrupted views of Sydney Harbour.


1 / 2

“Integrated over 4 floors of the iconic Quay Quarter building, the interior theme of this workplace is reverently inspired by the organic forms of the harbour coastline, creating a place for productivity and wellbeing to coalesce.  

The double height entry is a particularly memorable experience. Suspended from the ceiling, the immense delicate glass artwork by Yhonnie Scarce becomes the focal point. Deft planning of each level ensures the sweeping views are shared and equitable throughout. The palette is muted and restrained with richness added through tactility and reflectivity of materials.  

A highly refined and resolved interior – an exemplar for staff and client experience.”
