This is a recent luxury residential apartment project in Sydney’s Surry Hills.  This is located on the eastern edge of the Sydney CBD in an area which has always had lots of life and character being the presence of many fashion houses, cafes, restaurants, bars, hotels and many creative businesses.  Since the completion of this project, the area has continued to grow with new hotels and more upmarket apartment projects.  This looks to now continue with the upgrading of the nearby Central Railway.

We developed the design with our Client to reflect and express the history and dynamic energy and spirit of the area.  The idea being to create a building with this that is a place of respite, comfort and relaxation and that provides a “warm home” in the midst of our busy and bustling city.  To do this we have designed a building that is strong in form and rich in colour and texture. The interiors feature natural materials and crafted materials and finishes which were the vision and work of the very talented and Australian “living treasure” Collette Dinnigan.

This project was more than 15 years in the making.  Over this time we worked on a number of options for the site and we transferred the old heritage “Golf House” sign with its neon golfer ~ who every time hit a hole in one ~ to the Power House Museum, as well as re-zoning the site to increase its permissible height and floor space.  We then developed the design for the building as you see it now, and gained the necessary approvals, assisted the successful sales and marketing campaign, and then assisted the Builder and our Client through all stages of construction, fitout and handover.  This included creating a Gym on the ground floor.

The building has now become a significant landmark for the area.
