‘State of The Art’ Commercial Office – Foveaux Street Surry Hills.
The project site located in Little Riley Street Conservation area and is surrounded by a mix of commercial and residential land uses which include terrace housing and street-front retail. Careful consideration was given to the existing nature of the streetscape and the surrounding buildings.
The site contained two existing buildings; one six storey brick office and one retail building that were modified into a refurbished eight storey commercial building providing a headquarters for a singular tenant.
The ground floor was configured to deliver a new entry, meeting rooms, staff canteen and kitchen for preparation of communal dining. The dining space sits within a three-storey glazed atrium which wraps around the irregular existing building form and creates an open west facing façade on Waterloo Street. Three sculptural lantern-like roof lights sit within the glass atrium roof.
