Project description

Construction of a four-storey office extension adjoining the Wynyard Travelodge Hotel for NRMA executive areas. The project also included the renovation of the Travelodge podium façade and conversion of Level 1 spaces to offices, linking to the new extension.

The extension is an excellent example of post-modern minimalist architecture with a frameless planar glass curtain wall façade, cantilevered glass awning and internal glass observation lift.

Some of the unique challenges that were successfully resolved by AW Edwards included:

  •  A very high quality customised façade
  •  Three of the site boundaries fronted busy CBD roads
  •  The site was one of the most constrained in Sydney being only 8m wide by 22m long opposite the Wynyard transport interchange
  •  The immediately adjacent 25-storey hotel remained in continuous operation
