Barrack Place includes 22,000sq.m of A-Grade office space and retail over 18 levels. The project has been awarded Australia’s first ever WELL Core & Shell Gold Precertification by the International WELL Building Institute. To achieve this rating, Barrack Place adheres to strict decibel restrictions and features an energy-saving, ‘Organic Response’ lighting system. Floor-to-ceiling glass façade panels provide ample natural light and an impressive view, which reveals a distinct corridor linking the project to Sydney’s iconic Martin Place.
It was also awarded a 5.5 Star NABERS Energy Rating and 4 Star NABERS Water Rating, exceeding the projects targets through sustainable design and operational management.
The building itself is a combination of old and new, with modern glass towers emerging from a typically older-style red brick podium. The intent for Barrack Place was to retain the industrial feel of its surrounds and create cohesion with neighbouring buildings. Barrack Place acts as a thoroughfare between Clarence and Kent Streets and epitomises Sydney’s growing laneway culture. The ground floor includes up-market retailers and healthy food and beverage outlets. The building also features a central void which links the studio levels and floods internal spaces with natural light.
