Gateway is a 47-storey commercial office tower with panoramic views of Circular Quay and Sydney Harbour. This slender, diamond-shaped tower was developed in response to the site’s restrictive building envelope. To minimise horizontal wind deflection, the floor beams are rigidly connected to the central core walls. Design practice HASSELL was recently commissioned to create a new entry foyer and lobby for the building. A key design element was a ‘river of lights’ to enhance the angled geometry of the existing lobby and provide a unique artwork. A café was also integrated into the building’s entrance to create a social hub and breathe life into the connecting laneways. New lighting and mechanical systems also ensured that the upgrade complied with the latest standards for reducing energy consumption.
The "river of lights" and the view. Apart from the view and some terrific reflections I don't think the building has a lot to recommend it.
