Ashurst Five Martin Place

Fusing the grand tradition of a classic building with State of the Art design, the visionary 5 Martin Place makes a powerful and unique statement

5 Martin Place is an exemplar in heritage led urban renewal re-establishing the importance of the 1916 “Money Box” within Martin Place.

The project by JPW and TKD Architects in collaboration, evolved from a site specific LEP developed with the City of Sydney

A dynamic new presence in the Sydney skyline and an exhilarating landmark in the city’s commercial heart, 5 Martin Place unites past and future in a way that is truly inspirational.

Its striking form fuses a reimagined and revitalised heritage building with a soaring new glass tower to create a next generation workplace in Sydney’s most iconic commercial, ceremonial and civic heart.

The sandstone base remains a monument to Martin Place’s long-standing cultural and commercial weight. Above, the radiant crystal tower delivers height, transparency and energy in a stunning display of conceptual clarity.

It respects views from the Cenotaph and overshadowing of Pitt Street Mall, reinforces the sandstone and trachyte precinct character and recreates a linked sequence of accessible spaces that support a diversity of uses.

Innovative structural design has enabled the tower to cantilever over the existing building such that no additional load is applied to the heritage building.

The project features integrated chilled beams, double skin facades, reuse of original trachyte and conservation of Joseph Albers “Wrestling”. Perceived heritage constraints have been turned into commercial opportunities, with the combination of contemporary workplaces and heritage tower floors both attracting premium tenants.

The modern design includes a new tower with an 11-storey central atrium ‘light well’ and triple height foyer.

5 Martin Place’s heritage component has been thoughtfully updated while retaining its distinctive features such as the sandstone and marble façade and marble clad stairs.

Completed in 2015, 5 Martin Place offers 19 levels of Premium Grade office space with 1,100-2,400 square metre typical floor plates, while the upper floors benefit from a full-height glass façade that fills the workspaces with natural light and offer views over Martin Place and the CBD.

The building occupies a prominent corner position within Martin Place and sustainability is at the core of its design with 5 Martin Place currently targeting a 5 Star Green Star rating, 5.0 star NABERS Energy rating through initiatives such as multi-service chilled beams, a high efficiency façade, sensor lighting controls and a regenerative power system.
