nettletontribe were engaged refurbish the main foyer of 99 Mount Street as part of the second stage of the building’s refurbishment programme which saw the completion of office tower level refurbishment in stage one. The final stage will involve the refurbishment of the podium and street level retail tenancy facades.
The main foyer sits on the podium above street level and establishes a connection back to Mount Street along with the daily foot-traffic passing through North Sydney. It creates a space to engage with the occupants of the building while reinforcing a strong sense of connection to place and strengthening its bold, visual identity.
The foyer design exemplifies simplicity and elegance, combining dark timber, polished concrete, smoked mirrors, and concealed low-output lighting. The space draws attention to the focal point of the design, an attention-grabbing backlit artwork wall. The interchangeable artwork installation features a scene of abstract figures, conjuring images of office workers or passers-by and reinforcing the streetscape connection. Given its adaptable application, the artwork will change and evolve along with this dynamic space.
