9-15 Young Street

Circular Quay, NSW Australia
A

9-15 Young Street is a mixed-use retail, commercial and residential apartment building; it is nuanced, unique and of its place. 

Designed in collaboration with Studio Bright, Silvester Fuller and ASPECT Studios, 9-15 Young Street is one of three new residences and two heritage conversions set in the new Quay Quarter precinct. The buildings are connected via activated laneways, fine grain arcades and public art by Jonathan Jones to establish a new urban village at the base of Circular Quay.

Featuring rich, velvety materials, 9-15 Young Street is made of luxurious brick, with deep reflective window reveals sitting above the glazed commercial office façade below. This richness and contrast respond to the historic masonry of nearby Bridge Street. Steel awnings with polished brass soffits are draped from the facade – creating an active pedestrian-scaled yet intimate street experience. 

The base of the building incorporates a public arcade creating a connection through the site with boutique retail, cafes and dining tenancies, topped with three levels of light-filled boutique commercial office spaces. All will overlook the revitalised city laneway of the remade Loftus Lane.  

Eight levels of apartments are perched high in the city skyline with landscaped rooftops and private views of Sydney Harbour. They enjoy a thick perimeter wall, accommodating window seats and orchestrated framed views of Sydney landmarks. Double-storey voids give selected living rooms a sense of luxury, rare in inner-city multi-residential developments.
