For the past two years, Carr Design Group has worked closely with Australia Post to optimise its Cleveland Street headquarters, one of Sydney’s most iconic buildings.
Objectives for the refurbishment included a new workplace for Australia Post and StarTrack that would see a greater focus on collaboration, innovation and connectivity, update the base building to meet A Grade building standards and secure a 5 star energy rating.
“The refurbishment of Cleveland Street building, now known as StarTrack House, activates the landscape and the building forecourt through the introduction of an elegant glazed atrium, which provides protection to the new building entry but also defines a new architectural language to the site.” says Carr.
“All the glazing has been replaced to achieve thermal and energy requirements and external cladding re-finished to complement the new building identity. The redesign of the entry foyer now engages with the forecourt and provides areas to meet and congregate.”
“Interiors are refurbished throughout, with the introduction of new amenities including a ground floor cafe, and end-of-trip shower and change areas. The expansive work floors led to an innovative neighbourhood floorplan, as each zone was given a different identity through the use of colour and graphics.”
