Newton St makes a considered and robust addition to the eclectic fabric of Cremorne, replacing a single-level warehouse and open-air car park. The new commercial building lies in the heart of an emerging and vibrant inner urban hub with its mix of residential buildings, offices and showrooms.
Red brick warehouses scattered throughout the area serve as a reminder of a bygone industrial past. Newton St’s architectural composition and materiality draw upon the rich history of the neighbourhood, while crafting a contemporary office building for 21st century working.
Comprising 7-storeys of commercial office with ground floor retail and cafe, roof terrace and basement carparking, the development features large, evenly spread expanses of glazing which allow natural light to penetrate deep into the floorplate.
On the western facade, a lightweight structure cantilevers above Walnut St and appears as a series of boxes. This creates spaces that alternate between protruding glazed meeting rooms and balconies, providing further activation and views to street level.
