Tom Dixon’s London-based design firm Design Research Studio has been named the winner of AMP Capital’s interior design competition for the lobby and connected facilities of Quay Quarter Tower.

Four design firms were invited to participate in the two-month long competition, but Design Research Studio stood out for their reputation, design aesthetic and aspirational concepts, said AMP Capital’s chief operating officer real estate, Louise Mason.

“We used this competition to specifically seek out globally pre-eminent designers of lifestyle spaces such as hotels, clubs, restaurants, bars and co-working spaces, who can bring a completely different perspective to how we would normally view, and therefore design, a commercial lobby,” Mason said.

Dixon’s recent work includes the interiors for Mondrian London Hotel, Shoreditch House, Bronte Restaurant on the Strand in London's West End and McCann Worldwide Headquarters in New York.

The firm is also known for their design of the lighting installations for Bennelong restaurant at Circular Quay, Sydney.

3XN were appointed as the lead design architects for the 49-floor tower at 50 Bridge Street, Sydney last year.

The Quay Quarter Sydney precinct will span two inner city blocks over a site area of around 11,000 square metres and incorporates a mix of commercial, retail and luxury residential.

“The QQT lobby will be both the statement address for the tower and the nexus between the activated streetscape of Quay Quarter, the retail marketplace offering and the tower above,” Mason said.

“Together the lobby, retail podium and tower will provide a series of connected spaces that meet a range of user needs.

Quay Quarter Tower will be an attractor of key talent into the future and provide a vibrant marketplace of experiences where people will have more opportunities to choose how and where they work and interact with their colleagues and customers.”

50 Bridge Street is jointly owned by investors in the AMP Capital Diversified Property Fund (ADPF) and the AMP Capital Wholesale Office Fund (AWOF).

Subject to final investor approvals, construction is expected to commence in 2018 and will take approximately three years to complete.
