350 George Street Apartment

Brief
The aim of Design Practice 3 project is to formulate an interior architecture proposal for a two level apartment. Set in the scenario in which the centre of Sydney has acquired a residential character, the project takes as the site the building of the Societé Generale located at 350 George Street. Designed by the American architect Edward Raht and completed in 1894, the building has exceptional architectural features and high significance, and is listed in the NSW state heritage register.

Students have been asked to develop their proposals based on a close analysis of the brief, site and client, the latter chosen from a range of four (a film maker, an artist, a writer and a musician).
The apartments have a footprint of about 120 square meters and make the best use possible of the architectural features of the building, in particular of the generous ceiling heights, the remarkable windows and balconies. The proposals do not involve any alterations to the façade of the building.
In this project emphasis is placed on spatial and material translation of ideas derived from an enquiry into the site, client profile, interior typology (precedent study) and materiality. Students have been encouraged to use a holistic approach encompassing the design of all architectural elements, fixed furniture, materials (finishes), fixtures and main loose furniture.
