36 Carrington Street is adjacent to Wynyard Station, one of Sydney's busiest transport exchanges. We’re refurbishing this 10-storey office building as part of a wider redevelopment of the city's CBD.
Our design is a complete overhaul, with the building stripped back to its structure and reimagined with new frontages, services and interiors. We're replacing the front facade with three bays of windows that continue that rhythm of the listed Lisgar House next door and frame views into Wynyard Park. The new facade reflects its neighbour’s use of punched windows with contrasting reveals, and uses dark brickwork with an iridescent glaze to anchor the building and punctuate the street. By extending the new window reveals at the upper level, we're providing solar shading as the building ascends beyond the protection of the tree canopy opposite.
Other renovations include reconfiguring the top level into a generous double-height office space and wrapping the roof in elegant elemental forms to strengthen the aspect of the fifth elevation. Once complete, the building will feature new retail frontage on Carrington Street and Wynyard Lane, plus an improved entrance sequence that culminates in a beautiful double-height office lobby.
Our refurbishment will rebalance the building's scale and proportion, and ensure it sits better within its context. It’s part of an ongoing transformation that’s raising aspirations and refocusing attention on this important precinct in Sydney.
