200 George Street

Design

Design-1

Design-2

A landmark building designed by architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp, 200 George embraces innovation and technology to produce a tower form that is organic and responsive, with a timber and clear glass façade. Automated timber blinds, combined with vertical timber shading elements and three layers of performance glazing, combine to create an advanced environmental skin. This unique system, the first of its type in Australia, adjusts to external factors and occupant preference, reinforcing the human focused qualities of 200 George.

Internal spaces reflect a contemporary urban environment in which to work, with spectacular views to Sydney’s most recognised places – the Opera House and Harbour.

The design of both public and work spaces acknowledges the way in which the conduct of business has evolved, offering active uses and amenity conducive to the constructive exchange of ideas.
