151 Macquarie Street
Sydney NSW
Repositioning one of Sydney's most prestigious addresses.
With sweeping views over the Royal Botanic Gardens and Sydney Opera House, the 151 Macquarie Street repositioning transforms this 1960s 12-storey tower into a contemporary icon within the Sydney CBD.

A rejuvenated facade increases openings on the North and Eastern aspects, providing tenants with enhanced natural light, increased views and connection to the historic surrounds.

The concept re-imagines the building’s history with the podium reinstated to its original datum, and the existing structural 'c-shape' slab edge showcased subtly through a new continuous glazed curtain wall system.

A mixture of intricately detailed clear and reverse-gradient-frit glass fins enables uninterrupted views from within the floor plates while accentuating verticality and the illusion of tower solidity along the streetscape.

Combining this unique fin treatment with a fine grain terracotta finish sympathetically ties the new envelope to its heritage context of the building, while creating a unique identity for the building.
