Challenge

WMK was engaged to refurbish and reposition the former KPMG building, a 15-floor office building adjacent to Barangaroo into a renewed, elegant and contemporary A-grade office environment, with the view to attract high-quality tenants.

The scope of work includes a refurbished entry lobby and office floors, new exterior canopy, additional end-of-trip facilities, upgraded services, and a rooftop terrace for entertaining clients.

Solution 

The solutions designed by WMK add amenity to the building with new and upgraded facilities and improved entry. A weather-protected entry to the north has been provided, creating linkages with the Barangaroo precinct and major transportation hubs. 

The refreshed foyer features stylish and contemporary materials, a café, and enhanced security to the ground floor lift lobby.

Employees benefit from expanded end-of-trip facilities in the basement. A vibrant client entertainment space is provided on the rooftop. This features a roof deck with covered canopy, servery and full amenities enabling year-round entertaining with impressive views across the harbour.

Outcome

The building now provides PCA grade-A office space in the heart of the vibrant Barangaroo precinct.

The revitalised streetscape, connections to Barangaroo and major transport hubs increase access and amenity for occupants and visitors alike.

With its refreshed contemporary design, improved access and amenity, 10 Shelley Street quickly attracted a tenant to occupy the building.
