Cobild Head Quarters

9-11 Cremorne Street, Cremorne

The Cobild Head Quarters project encompasses an impressive 8-level commercial office building with a triple-level basement featuring car stackers. Located on a compact city fringe site, the development showcases a historically significant early Edwardian factory facade.

Designed specifically for Australian conditions, the office building combines innovative features that adapt to the evolving environment while respecting the existing heritage fabric.

Serving as a prominent corner bookend, it serves as a symbolic gateway to the vibrant Cremorne precinct. With its Greenstar rating, the building embraces sustainability and energy efficiency, setting new standards in contemporary commercial architecture.
