167 Castlereagh Street, Sydney, New South Wales
WAF 2014 Award Winner (Completed Building - Office)
Awarded The Chicago Athenaeum, International Architecture Award for 2015
Located in the heart of Sydney’s Financial District, Liberty Place, lies between Pitt street and Castlereagh street. This architectural project includes three very different architectural forms inspired by the features of this inviting square which is fast becoming a popular recreational area in Sydney’s CBD (Central Business District).
The ANZ Tower with its 42 floors and its distinctive glass walls has completely changed the view of the Sydney Skyline, and is the main building. 167 Castlereagh Street, with its interesting curves and ProdEX panels in Pale color is the first building that we see as we approach the square.
Finally, the Legion House, built in 1902 by YWCA, gives its name to the area as it was originally a hostel where women came to when fleeing poverty or abuse. The building originally had 3 floors, and the two new floors that have been added are covered by ProdEX wood panels which together with the louvers added to the back part of the building, give an entirely new image to the building without clashing with the building’s original style., creating a perfect harmony between the two different parts of the building.
