positioned at the heart of sydney’s central business district, grimshaw architects has been selected to construct ‘333 george street‘, an 18-storey mixed-use building offering both office space and a host of retail outlets.

 

the project is defined by five levels of cascading terraces situated at its peak, providing views across the city center. serving as the building’s focal point, the platforms offer occupants the chance to meet and engage in a casual yet refined environment.

each storey features expansive glazing, allowing natural light to flood the open-plan floorplates, and enabling the structure to develop a close relationship with its surroundings. contained within the lower portion of the scheme, three levels of retail space are located behind sandstone columns and steel-framed glazing.

 

currently under construction, ‘333 george street’ is scheduled for completion in mid 2016.
