Project Highlights

Deutsche Bank Place - 126 Phillip Street, Sydney

 Granite Fountains - Deutsche Bank Place, Sydney

 

The newly completed 126 Phillip St. project in Sydney presents light, space and innovation to its tenants and visitors.  Now known as Deutsche Bank Place, this 40 storey office development will no doubt become a landmark building throughout Sydney due to its extended angular framework which delicately tops the building.  The full height atrium and transparent high-speed lift system provide for unimpeded access to light and views while the column free floor plate allows for freedom in individual floor design. 

 

 

 Austral Juperana granite paving - Deutsche Bank Place, Sydney

 

The 240 tall metre office complex is grounded by large paving flags produced from Austral Juperana granite quarried in Western Australia and supplied by Melocco.  The granite paving extends from the sheltered rectilinear plaza through to the lift lobby.  Along with the transparency of the expansive glass frontage at ground level, the continuity of the paving literally welcomes you into the building.  The warm flowing texture of the flamed granite in the plaza highlights the strong geometric presence of a series of fountains manufactured from black granite. 

 

Granite - Deutsche Bank Place, Sydney

 

 

As the stone consultant on the project, Stone Initiatives carried out an extensive physical testing program on the granite to determine its suitability, ensuring that it was “fit-for-purpose”.  This evaluation was followed by inspection of the quarry and processing facilities to ensure that a quality product could be supplied within the project time frame.  Installation specifications such as bedding and jointing were also developed and issues such as cleaning, slip and stain resistance were addressed to ensure serviceability and to make the open space user-friendly.
