No.1 Shelley Street

No.1 Shelley Street is an 11 storey office building in the King Street Wharf precinct, completed in 2009. The diagonal steel structural system that sits beyond the building's glass façade is a 'diagrid', which removes the need for perimeter columns and maximises fit-out design flexibility. The unique design of this building, occupied by Macquarie Bank, has created a dynamic addition to the Sydney skyline.

  2. That is the first I have seen of that design, maybe the only. A building in a cage.

  4. I start to learn something about Sydney!
    You are so far away from here!
    Is good for me to understand not only the images but the atmosphere and the spirit of the city!
    Thanks!
    Regards

  7. No worries, Richie. I think you'll find that Sydney and Parramatta have changed a lot since the early 1980s.

  16. What an unusual and interesting building. I was wondering about the building behind the artwork in yesterday's post.

  17. This looks very interesting. I am amazed with those architectural ideas. I don't think it is beautiful in the sense of the old buildings but it suits a modern city. I love the sculptures, over dimensional vases.A Clever way to hide the ugly ventilation openings.

  22. Humph...what they do with engineering! That is pretty neat - so I guess the outside is protected - what about the inside - I am guessing that infrastructure is a must - LOL! Wonder what that would look like? When building a house once - it was fun to watch it all come together - bet that was a job - the structural engineering aspects, as well as the building of it.

  23. Amazing!!! Love the photo share of Sydney.

    My watery photos are shrimp boats coming in and a sailboat going out. Do stop by if you get a chance.

  24. Very interesting and beautiful structure! Living in California, the first that comes to mind is how it will hold up in an earthquake")

  25. Jeanette, Sydney is not prone to earthquakes but never say never. Newcastle, which is a city 127kms north of Sydney was rocked by a magnitude 5.6 earthquake in 1989.
