CKDS Architecture partnered with PTW Architects to design a building that would set a new benchmark for commercial office space in Newcastle. Set on the corner of Stewart Ave & Hunter St, Newcastle West, this new five storey development provides in excess of 9,400sqm NLA of premium grade office and retail space with associated car parking. The proposal comprises a series of open plan office volumes separated by a clear linear circulation zone. The rhythm and permeability of the building form is derived from the surrounding urban grain that will further enhance this emerging area of the city and complement the award winning Gateway Development on the opposite corner. Through the creation of new public plazas, links to surrounding green spaces and a multi level atrium the development will generate and promote greater workplace connectivity and flexibility.
