Project: 1 Denison Street, North Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Developer: Winten Property Group
Architect: Bates Smart Architects
Product: DecoPanel Flat Sheet Cladding
Colour: Custom finish
Sitting high above the centre of North Sydney, Nine Entertainment’s new office building features an elegant and timeless design that distinguishes itself from the other commercial buildings surrounding it.
The 1.4 billion dollar tower boasts a remarkable, central position close to Sydney Harbour, a location that required thorough research and planning when it came to what building materials to specify on the building’s facade.
Impacted by direct sunlight, ocean air and exhaust fumes from the city traffic, Bates Smart Architects opted for durable DecoPanel flat sheet cladding finished in a custom DecoWood® powder coat finish for the building’s façade feature. DecoPanel’s solid aluminium flat sheets were selected for its natural timber-look appearance that was 100 per cent non-combustible and fire-safe as tested and certified by the CSIRO. DecoPanel also includes the benefits of a low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing finish with adequate protection against harsh weather conditions – a necessity for city buildings.
As well as meeting these key safety requirements, DecoPanel is a sustainable building product that does not involve using harmful VOC’s, an important element for the buildings Premium Grade, 5 Star Green Rating.
The DecoPanel flat sheets will be wrapped around the lower half of the building’s façade bringing a warmth and sophistication to North Sydney’s bustling streets.
1 Denison Street is due for completion in 2020 and will be home for major brands such as Nine Entertainment Co, Microsoft and oOh!media.
