In the heart of the Double Bay village, this prestigious luxury commercial and retail project proposes creative adaptation and reuse of the existing structure. The addition of two floors requires an upgrade to the building’s structural capacity, in which we have explored a range of lightweight structural systems, including CLT timber floors and slim-floor lightweight composite structures.

Our designs have leveraged microfine cement injections for footing augmentation and adopted jacketing for column strengthening with a transfer structure on the existing rooftop to allow maximum flexibility for column locations to the two new floors.
