A need for space and sustainability was key to AJ+C’s adaptive reuse of a warehouse in inner-city Sydney.
A discerning client The fresh and funky 79 Myrtle Street houses Allen Jack+Cottier’s Sydney office. The adaptive reuse of this former warehouse was a logical next step for our expanding practice, which had outgrown offices in nearby Surry Hills.
Fostering creativity The completed space boasts a variety of breakout areas and team pods, ideal for our team of architects and designers. These details enable us to retain the creative intimacy of a small studio within a large open-plan office space.
Green offices Our main priority was to create a healthy, light-filled and ‘green’ office space. Adapting a warehouse was an exercise in sustainability, and we complemented this by carefully selecting materials such as low-emission paints. All workstations are low-formaldehyde MDF and efficient light fittings simulate natural light. The air-conditioning system has a natural-ventilation option, while retrofitted toilets and taps minimise water consumption.
