Celebrating historic lineage and contemporary interpretation.
Kent House, situated in Sydney’s busy commercial precinct, will be a mixed-use tower redevelopment with interior design by Woods Bagot.
The project is a modern interpretation of the historical lineage of 333 Kent Street, that captures the character and charm of the architectural history and bygone tenants.
Due for completion in 2024, the building will offer 14,173 square meters of office space across 16 floors with 450 square meters dedicated to the external space. In addition to the office space, Woods Bagot’s interior design scope includes the ground floor’s entrance & lobby with hospitality and retail opportunities, and ‘The Sanctuary’ on level 4 including end-of-trip and wellness amenities.

The design will include features such as solar panel systems, electric vehicle charging points, hydraulic efficiency, and smart and touchless technology, and is aiming for a five-star NABERS energy rating and a five-star Green Star as-built rating. A dedicated wellness floor with treatment rooms, a steam room, and a yoga facility is also included.
Kent House design references the Kent Street Quarry which centers around the use of local materiality, texture, and contemporary representation.
The architecture will be defined by arch geometry, meticulous detailing, and thoughtful form. The design concept draws inspiration from the site’s industrial history and seeks to celebrate the legacy of the 1917 Tucker & Co Spirit White Merchant.
The use of glass, reflection, and refraction creates a dynamic interplay between the interior and exterior spaces, adding an element of surprise and delight to the visitor’s experience.
In addition to the heritage aesthetic, the project will also features a retail space inspired by printing and bookbinding that showcases authentic craft, with leather and stitching details that harken back to a bygone era.
Kent House is a testament to the beauty and versatility of local materials, and the ability of contemporary design to celebrate and reinterpret history.
