Habitat House – 64 Kippax

Habitat House – 64 Kippax

MPA was engaged by April Group to re-position their building as a premium offering, combining lifestyle and amenities. The demand for commercial properties on the fringe of Sydney’s CBD has surged, as suburbs such as Surry Hills, Redfern and Chippendale become more desirable. Habitat House is perfectly positioned in Surry Hills and provides high-end facilities for like minded tenants. [video width="720" height="480" mp4="http://mpa.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/64-Kippax_MPA-Edit-LR.mp4" poster="http://mpa.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/64-Kippax-Video-Image_1920-x-1080-1.jpg"][/video]   The Design & Construct project was completed across eight commercial levels, two basements including an end of trip facility, and a conversion of the vacant roof into a vibrant rooftop garden. Designed by architects The World Is Round, the innovative space focuses on collaboration and wellness. The end of trip facility also encourages tenants to embrace healthy living and sustainable habits. Tenants can also enjoy the rooftop terrace, which provides a space for socialising and relaxation. The lobby area features a curved wall made from glass bricks and charred timber wall paneling, adding an edginess which feels right at home in the chic city fringe suburb. In preparation for the refurbishment to the 6,000m2 base building, all fitouts and infrastructure were completely stripped. Heavy remediation to façade glazing and spandrels were undertaken across the eleven levels. With substantial works being carried out on the roof, a large crane was positioned in the street to carry up a smaller crane. The smaller crane was then situated on the rooftop for the duration of construction to move around the heavyweight rooftop materials. Alongside the base build upgrade, MPA was also engaged to undertake integrated fitouts of various floors on behalf of clients including Guzman Y Gomez (792m2), Blackmores (2,200m2) and Audinate (700m2). Set to become Surry Hills’ leading commercial space, the fully repositioned 1960’s office building is drenched in natural light with a creative and modern atmosphere.
