Quay Quarter Lanes is the rejuvenation of a city block in the heart of Sydney City at Circular Quay. The project comprises a collection of new and restored buildings and laneways. Three new buildings designed by SJB, Silvester Fuller and Studio Bright complement the site’s heritage wool store Hinchcliff House, restored by Carter Williamson and the Gallipoli Memorial Club, restored by Lippmann Partnership. Stitching the new and old is a public domain and landscape design by ASPECT Studios.
18 Loftus Street, containing 36 apartments and six retail tenancies, anchors the South-West corner of the precinct. The design seeks to give the building a singular identity overlaying an incremental transition of form and opening size in response to orientation, daylight, views, sound, privacy and proximity. Interiors are designed with a health and wellness focus, guiding internal form, material selection and colour for living, bathing and sleeping spaces within each home.
