A new extension was also added to the building over the three floors. This addition is inspired by design methodologies adopted a century ago - innovation, decoration and social creation. The choice of interfacing materials between the heritage building and the extension produces a strong connection between the old and new. The materials complement each other and flow between internal and external spaces in an asymmetrical fashion much like the building before it.
Group GSA believes this will see the new state of the art premises age beautifully alongside the original building for another century to come. GroupGSA has reinvigorated an important piece of NSW architecture and history. We’ve ensured the work of the former Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon, continues to function as it was intended, but now more aligned with contemporary work processes.
