151 Clarence Street

151 Clarence Street

Located in the middle of one of Sydney’s longest street blocks, and adjacent to Barrack Street, 151 Clarence with its through-site link is a gateway for pedestrians moving across the city.

The precinct bounded by York, King, Kent and Erskine Streets includes a number of significant heritage items and retains elements of the traditional warehouse quarter of Central Sydney.Architectus’ design responds to this rich and diverse context through careful consideration of the ground plane, street wall and podium elements, and adjacent buildings.

An elegant glass tower rises above a detailed brick podium which embodies the character of the surrounding precinct. The floorplates are deep by modern commercial standards due to the size of the site and the requirement to provide a street wall. As a result, balconies and lightwells have been introduced to draw light deep within the floorplate.

Podium level office floors have been designed to maximise efficiency and quality of the workplace while tower floors deliver the best possible commercial floorplate achievable and are easily sub-divisible.

Designed to achieve a 5 Star NABERS Energy rating, sustainability features include photovoltaic arrays integrated into the facade and an automated closed cavity facade system.
