Carried our in collaboration with PTW and March Studio, our design for 4-6 Bligh Street takes inspiration from Sydney’s greatest natural asset – the coastal sandstone cliff forms and natural and man made pools at the cities water edges.
The project comprises a 54 storey hotel tower with 412 keys, above an 11 storey commercial building.
Entry to the building is via a new plaza, formed as if by an erosion of the building form to create a cave like entry. The chevron geometry of the podium and tower facades take inspiration from Emil Soderstan’s City Mutual building, the buildings southern neighbour and an inspirational reference point for the design.
The new Plaza will contain entries to the hotel and commercial office lobbies, along with a vibrant food and beverage offering including a major restaurant, cafes and pop-up retail activities
The movement of water is a recurring theme throughout the design.
Below the new plaza, a wellness and fitness centre is positioned, creating a spectacular subterranean grotto – with a dark green marble used for both the pool interior and surrounding platforms and walls.
