Winner: Development Excellence Award for Adaptive Re-Use Medium Density Development 2016


Developer: Bridgehill Milsons Point

Architect: SJB Interiors

Bridgehill Residences, Milsons Point is as adaptive reuse project comprising the conversion of an existing commercial office tower into a mixed-use residential building. The project provides 126 apartments ranging in size from 40 to 225 sqm, with two retail spaces at ground level and a commercial component at Level 1. The site presented many construction challenges ranging from working with existing building fabric through to limitations on site access.

The project successfully adapts a tired commercial building and now features a sophisticated double glazed curtain wall skin with high quality winter gardens and open plan living areas.
