New South Head Road
The proposal for the site is the demolition of an existing office building and the construction of a new seven-storey commercial building with six floors of office space, retail at the ground floor and two basement levels for car parking. It is located on the corner of Mona Road and New South Head Road – a highly visible gateway site forming part of the New South Head Road corridor commercial precinct.
The design proposal leverages the architectural milieu of the surrounding context – a rich legacy of art deco brick buildings dating from the 1920s that strengthens the four-storey street wall presentation along New South Head Road. The height and scale of the podium component for the proposed design is articulated to match the scale of surrounding buildings, with the upper levels of the building set back on New South Head Road and Mona Road in deference to the heritage-listed Mona Road terraces to the north.
In satisfying both the local council and our own metrics for design excellence, MHNDU believes this project will inspire a new direction in boutique commercial office design that is responsive to the unique character and heritage of the local area.
