John Holland Group
275 George occupies a significant location in Sydney’s central business district at the gateway where George Street transitions from an environment of towers and open space to a street defined by podia and street walls. This prominent location means the building enjoys exceptional outlook to the north and east creating a high quality workplace for the buildings tenants.
The architectural language, defined by a finely detailed glazed curtain wall with vertical sandstone elements speaks to the history of the city and the use of Pyrmont sandstone as a defining material of Sydney’s colonial history.
The 2-storey retail shopfronts at street level provide an exceptional opportunity for high quality retailers to occupy space at one of the key east / west intersections in the city.
The palette of materials utilised throughout is elegant and understated and seeks to deliver a timeless and sophisticated commercial address that is sympathetic to its context.
Public art, by Canberra-based artist Hannah Quinlivan adorns the sandstone facade with intersecting patterns of engraved line work.
