Salesforce Tower at Sydney Place
NLA 55 500 sqm
Foster + Partners
Architectus is working with Foster + Partners as Executive Architect on Circular Quay Tower, a new office building that will be the centrepiece of a new world class precinct.
At up to 263 metres high the tower makes a distinctive contribution to Sydney’s skyline with its innovative façade featuring a series of angled external braces derived from structural stress diagrams.
The south façade is broken into three bays with the concrete cores ‘book-ending’ the three transparent banks of lifts that animate the façade. The entire elevation is vertically articulated to modulate its visual impact on the skyline.
The expressed structure allows flexibility in interior layouts with the core offset to one side allowing innovative workspaces to be designed to support new ways of working in the 21st century suitable for a whole range of organisations.
The tower aims to achieve a NABERS 5 Star energy performance, a Green Star Rating of six, and is the first ever building in Sydney to achieve WELL Core and Shell pre-certification rating.
