City Mutual Building


The refurbishment of City Mutual Building is a prime example of our enthusiasm for heritage regeneration, bringing an Art Deco building into the modern era without compromising on design and new technologies to ensure workplace efficiency.


Designed by architect Emil Sodersteen, The City Mutual Building is one of Sydney's most iconic Art Deco buildings. Originally constructed in 1936, this 12 storey building was once Sydney's tallest 'skyscraper'. The condition of the granite and sandstone facades, along with the elaborate Scagliola work in the foyers and copper relief structures by Rayner Hoff over the main entry enhance the significance of the building.

Our refurbishment of this iconic building was characterised by a desire to retain the charm and original features of the building, while bringing it firmly into the 21st century. The building is now equipped with the latest technology and state of the art inclusions, creating inspirational work spaces and public spaces that juxtapose art deco ornamentation with a thoroughly modern feature set.

The City Mutual Building, set in the financial heart of the CBD, is home to businesses from a variety of sectors and includes renowned Australian chef Neil Perry's Rockpool Bar and Grill and Spice Temple restaurants.
