Sixty Martin Place

On a prominent corner in Sydney’s global financial hub on Gadigal Country, Australia this award-winning, 33-level tower holds one of the most coveted spots in the city. 

The striking, curved façade offers breathing room to St Stephen’s Church next door, a heritage building typical of this pocket of Sydney. Through a unique cantilever design, the tower’s north face extends out eight metres above the 1930s-era stone church.

The building also gives back to the neighbourhood — by carving out generous public space for indoor and outdoor dining, retail and events and providing a walkable link between Macquarie Street and Martin Place. This public space forms a glass atrium civic room’ that’s visually connected to the church façade across five levels and allows people on the upper levels to view and engage with events below. It’s a naturally ventilated area, so the feeling is like an outdoor space.

Further emphasising this connection to the outdoors are mixed-mode spaces on the podium roof, which use natural ventilation and switch to air conditioning when the weather heats up. There’s also an entire floor where the whole façade opens, allowing air conditioning to be turned off – a unique energy saving design feature for a significantly sized 1200 sq metre floor space.

Sixty Martin Place is in tune with the larger landscape too. When you first glimpse the top of the tower from Sydney Harbour, its green terraces blend with the parkland of the Domain and Royal Botanic Gardens, making it a natural — yet still distinctive — addition to the skyline.

This is another example of design done well, protecting our heritage on Macquarie Street while making a beautiful contribution to our skyline.”

  • The orientation of the building was re-planned so the core of the building faces west to block the strong western sunshine and resulting heat in the summer months. 
  • Fifty percent of the north façade is self-shaded as a direct result of the unique, cantilevered design.
  • Green spaces such as terraces on the podium and upper levels are not only aesthetically appealing but also act as a natural buffer for the location’s sometimes windy weather conditions — minimising the need for additional built windbreaks.
  • The rainwater runoff from green, vegetation-filled roofs and terraces feeds into a generous rainwater tank. The water is then re-used for irrigation, cooling and toilet flushing.
  • State-of-the-art facilities for cyclists, joggers and walkers encourage physical exercise and enhance employee well-being.
  • A digital overlay and building app that links into tennant’s services, monitors utilities like water and electricity, and analyses how often services like air conditioning are used. This data can then inform a strategy on how to save energy when only part of a floor space is being utilised.
  • The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) — Award of Excellence for Best Tall Building 100-199 meters, Best Interior Space and Best Façade Engineering.
