Sans Souci – Design, construct, retain, upgrade!

Design, construct, retain, upgrade!

Rocky Point Retail Strip

Sans Souci, Sydney

This brief was to design four detached shops on a corner site surrounding a central loading dock: a brand-new florist and seafood restaurant, as well as an existing hair and beauty salon.

Naturally, safety was paramount – this was a live site sharing a party wall with ongoing retail sites – and we worked closely with structural engineers to devise architectural solutions that wouldn’t damage existing structures or harm business.

Negotiations in good faith with council coupled with robust design – the essential foundation of any project – saw two shops along Rocky Point Road and two shops along Bonney Street approved for construction.

Glass louvers and bi-fold windows along the restaurant facade allowed for natural lighting and ventilation, enabling visual interaction of patrons with the street. We opened up ample exposure for the florist along both street frontages, aimed at increasing retail revenue. The clients, all small business owners, were highly satisfied with the overall design.
