Located in Sydney, Australia, One Shelley Street was designed by fitzpatrick+partners. The primary planning objective was to create a dynamic, efficient and flexible workspace. The design solution creates a building typography which describes its commercial use, but respects its harbour edge entertainment locale.
The deliberate expression of One Shelley Street’s external diagonal structure juxtaposes itself against the orthogonal expression of the surrounding city buildings, such that when a glimpse of it appears through an opening vista, or an elevation of it appears against the city silhouette, the building is immediately identifiable.
The primary planning objective was to create a dynamic, efficient and flexible workspace. The internal experience was enhanced through the creation of central or atrium based gathering spaces and bridges, establishing connectivity between all levels. source
