Pine Dowel Feature Ceiling for 1 Martin Place from Keystone

Pine Dowel Feature Ceiling for 1 Martin Place from Keystone

Located in the heart of the financial district of Sydney's CBD, No. 1 Martin Place is an innovative, flexible space designed to cater for a range of events and functions. With an expansive floor space and an audio system that is segregated in many zones, this space can accommodate multiple functions at the same time. The office building, owned by the Charter Hall Group, consists of 24-levels which offer unmatched access to Sydney's best restaurants, hotels, retails and public transport links.

The two-level fit-out contains an amazing feature ceiling, which includes over 9 kilometres worth of pine dowel, suspended at various lengths from routed Key-Ply plywood panels. Keystone's Michael Robbins explained that his team were approached in the early stages to help bring to life such a ground-breaking concept.

"Keystone Linings and Acoustics worked with Adriano Pupilli Architects and Siren Design at the concept stage creating a working prototype using the natural timbers chosen for both the dowels and the white triangular ceiling. Once reviewed and the final designs were completed by the architects, Graphite Projects were chosen as the preferred builder and from there Keystone worked closely with both architects and builder to help deliver the state-of-the-art project. There's not necessarily one experience and one use. In its entirety, it's a flexible space," Matthew Ryall - Architect, Adriano Pupilli Architects.

Charter Hall's Regional Portfolio Manager, Warwick Mayed revealed that one of the key elements were to bring the life of Martin Place into space; "Bringing in natural elements like the timber you see on The Portico ceiling, the timber on the walls and all the bespoke joinery, there's a lot of warmth in here now."

Other notable features include a large digital screen which intersected through the two levels, providing a vivid contrast to the natural timber "which activated the space" according to Siren Design Creative Director Venesa Buljubasic.
