1 Bligh Street

The 139-metre tall 1 Bligh office building in Sydney, Australia, will be inaugurated in 2011. Due to its compact geometry and a slight rotation of the building in relation to its site, all offices enjoy unobstructed views of the citys beautiful harbour. All the typical functions of the ground floor have been located on the second floor to allow a public plaza at street level. The high-rise building will be a significant addition to Sydneys skyline.
 
In addition to its spatial efficiency the building boasts an ecological concept that is not only unique for Sydney but also for the entire Australian continent.
 
The building will be the first high-rise tower to receive the highest 6 Star certificate of the Australian Green Star environmental rating system. Its fully-glazed tower is equipped with a double-skin façade and ventilated by an atrium that rises the buildings entire height. The building provides 45,000 m² of high-end office space.
