Maxton Fox was engaged by Multiplex to lead the joinery and stone works at the AMP Quay Quarter Tower in Circular Quay, Sydney.

Spanning two city blocks, Quay Quarter Sydney comprises the stunning Quay Quarter Tower at 50 Bridge Street. Designed by Danish architecture firm 3XN with local partners BVN, Quay Quarter Tower is a revitalised 50-storey commercial building and a vibrant destination supporting workers, residents and visitors in Sydney.

Multiplex led the $900-million redevelopment that transformed Quay Quarter Tower from an existing 45-year-old 45,000-square-metre office building into an 89,000-square-metre world-class, highly sustainable commercial tower.

Completed in March 2022, Quay Quarter Tower stands out against the skyline with a striking design, comprising a series of shifting, cantilevered glass volumes stacked upon each other. This unique design provides an atrium that cuts through the core of the building, offering expansive views of Sydney Harbour.

In a world-first, Multiplex demolished and reconstructed one side of the tower, whilst simultaneously retaining and refurbishing the other side. This adaptive reuse retained 68% of the building’s core and enabled significant environmental and operational efficiencies.

Entering the project during its early stages, Maxton Fox was responsible for the joinery and stone works across the main Ground Floor Reception and Level 1 Lobby areas, along with key public dining spaces in 00 and Basement 1.

Maxton Fox sourced, procured, managed the supply and arranged the fabrication of extraordinary stone from the Pilbara region of Western Australia. All stone and joinery items were fabricated and integrated seamlessly into the tower.

Key pieces manufactured in Western Sydney and installed by the Maxton Fox team include:

  • Stone Sit to Stand reception counter
  • Stone bench communal work tables
  • Stone and powder-coated stainless steel coffee and meeting tables
  • Corian waste units
  • Large Tasmanian oak and leather banquet seating units
