Address: 1 Bligh Street | SYDNEY | Australia

The 139-metre tall 1 Bligh Sydney office building in Australia, was inaugurated in autumn 2011. Due to its compact geometry and a slight rotation of the building in relation to its site, all offices enjoy unobstructed views of the city’s beautiful harbour. All the typical functions of the ground floor have been raised to allow a public plaza at street level. The high-rise building is a new highlight in Sydney´s skyline.
In addition to its spatial efficiency, the building boasts an ecological concept that is not only unique for Sydney but also for the entire Australian continent.
The building is the first high-rise tower to receive the highest six-star certificate of the Australian Green Star environmental rating system. Its fully glazed tower is equipped with a double-skin façade and ventilated by an atrium that rises the buildings entire height.
