24 Bay Street, Double Bay, NSW
In planning / Retail & Commercial
Its bones are filled with heritage-listed character. Yet this Modernist commercial masterpiece has been crying out for careful restoration for several decades. Built in 1968, Gaden House was designed by Neville Gruzman, a former Mayor of Woollahra and one of Sydney’s most influential architects of the 20th Century. Fortis is now teaming with architects Lawton Hurley to see it restored and reimagined.
On the corner of Bay and Cooper Streets, Gaden House occupies one of the most historic corner addresses in one of Sydney’s most prized postcodes. Boasting a rare triple street frontage in the heart of Double Bay Village, the site is surrounded by some of the Eastern Suburbs’ finest cafés, restaurants, gyms, designer boutiques, hotels and pubs, including the Royal Oak Hotel directly opposite. Just 300 metres from Steyne Park and Double Bay ferry wharf.
With significant community interest and heritage sensitivities, Fortis has assembled a project team of the highest calibre. Calling upon four of our most trusted Sydney partners, the structural vision is being led by Woolloomooloo architects, Lawton Hurley, with all landscaping and plantings by Wyer & Co.
Paying utmost respect to Gruzman’s original designs, the creative vision is to enhance the existing building by restoring key structural and aesthetic elements including the façade, concrete staircase, metal-clad louvres, terrazzo podium and feature lighting circles. Carefully preserving its past, whilst bringing ultra-contemporary new levels of amenity, Gaden House will be re-established as a Double Bay for generations to come.
