Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank Place at 126 Phillip Street Sydney is a striking addition to Sydney’s eastern skyline. With its distinctive remote core, the building is characterised by its vast, highly flexible, column-free floor plate. 30% more spatially efficient than traditional commercial buildings, Deutsche Bank Place sets new standards for the premium grade office market. The buildings unusual design and distinctive profile were guided by a number of factors, including the narrow site, the need for efficient floor plates, and exacting planning regulations that protected the amount of sunlight falling on two nearby public spaces. The structure is expressed in the facades of the office floors with the triangular Silver Metallic Alpolic/fr cladding of the columns, and repeated horizontally every 3 floors. This mega-grid is extended above the occupied floors to create a roof feature that gives the tower its unique shape and bridges the gap between two neighbouring buildings of significantly different height. The building has undergone an extensive lifecycle analysis testing with respect to its inherent energy, and has since received a 5 star green star office rating.

“… what we’ve got is a very good product. The building is very tenant friendly and the architecture is international standard. Tenants have been prepared to pay for that.” – Michael Cook, Investa Portfolio Manager
