Jones Bay Wharf
by PTW Architects & Bates Smart (Architects in association) with Otto Cserhalmi + Partners - Heritage Consultant

            

IN THE ARCHITECTS WORDS

Jones Bay Wharf, located at the end of the Pyrmont Peninsula, was built between 1911 and 1919 and was the last significant large-scale wharf yet to be refurbished on Sydney Harbour. The wharf consists of two linear cargo sheds, which have an upper and lower level and are separated by a central access road on each level that provided vehicular access to the spaces. Jones Bay Wharf (a joint venture of Toga Properties and Multiplex) won a development tender organised by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and engaged PTW Architects & Bates Smart with Otto Cserhalmi + Partners for the adaptive reuse of the wharf buildings. The aim of
 
 

PTW Architects / Bates Smart / OC+P was to sensitively preserve the wharf’s industrial maritime qualities, while adapting them to provide contemporary office space. The northern half of the wharf contains small strata titled offices (75-175m²), the southern half contains larger office tenancies (350-500m²), and a new shore building was constructed at the street entry with commercial space and generous restaurant incorporating the existing brick structures. A screen façade along the street consisting of an abstract composition of timber members creates a street presence and entry statement that reinterprets the technology of the wharf.
