Adding the finishing touch to a new corporate tower precinct in the heart of Sydney’s historic George Street wasn’t a tall order for the Arrow Metal team, which created the commercial perforated metal panels for the lobby of the new George Place development.
Comprising of 345 and 363 George Street and the heritage-listed 24 York Street, the new central ‘supersized’ lobby unites the ground floor levels of the three premium office buildings to create a space that offers a unique workplace experience.
The Arrow Metal team worked closely with construction and fit-out specialists FDC for the prestigious project, precisely tooling the commercial perforated metal panels which would wrap around the lobby’s lifts and elevators.
A mixture of solid and perforated metal panels, some of the sheets are back-lit and feature intricate combinations of pattern in-line with the high-end finish specified by property owners ISPT.
Featuring original artworks, premium furnishings and facilities including bars and restaurants, meeting spaces and quiet zones, the lobby is designed to be the dynamic main hub of the commercial complex, for an easy transition from work life to social life.
The new complex opposite Martin Place will also feature luxury high-street retail on its upper levels, creating a new, prominently-positioned precinct which will revitalise one of Sydney CBD’s busiest areas.
George Street was Sydney’s original high street and is the key pathway for the upcoming new $1.6bn light rail system from Circular Quay. The new tramway is set to return 40% of George Street to pedestrians, making George Place the new ‘go-to’ for shoppers, workers and tourists.
