Project summary

Designed by BKA Architecture to serve as the head office for an accountancy practice is the commercial development at 130 Parry Street, Newcastle West. The four-level building consists of a concrete frame with concrete “cores” providing bracing at stairs and lifts, expressed on the external façade with off form finish and wire framing to eventually provide “green walls” from planters at ground level. A detailed custom design fitout on Level 3 for the accountancy firm created spaces that enhance productivity, new ways of working principles and prioritising sustainability. From concept to construction detailing, the building employed green design principles, featuring green walls, vertical sun-shading to protect the extensive glazing on the eastern and western facades, an ‘A-Grade’ warm shell internal fit-out to remaining floor levels (in line with property council guidelines), and stormwater retention.
