MICHAEL GRANT, THE DEVELOPER

POPOV BASS ARCHITECTS

The Griffiths Teas development has been years in the making, an entire city looking on as the fate of this historic building takes shape. Bringing this Sydney landmark into the 21st century requires a distinctive architectural approach – a singular design aesthetic to match the iconic nature of the building.

Enter PopovBass. First founded in 1984, this highly regarded, multi-award-winning architectural and interior design practice has worked on projects throughout Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The Practice has received numerous major awards from the Australian Institute of Architects including winning the Wilkinson Award and the Robin Boyd Award on multiple occasions and the Architecture Australia prize to name a few. PopovBass are renowned for their site-specific designs and a rigorous focus on detailing. They create refined residential spaces that are designed to be lived in – working with the flow of light and distinctive materials to create homes that possess a calm, comfortable modernity, while also radiating warmth.

PopovBass sees the rebirth of the Griffiths Teas building as an emblem of the rejuvenation of the Surry Hills neighbourhood. By leaving untouched the many heritage elements of the building, both external and internal, the development pays homage to the vibrancy of the neighbourhood’s last golden age, when Griffiths Teas stood proud at one of the commercial and industrial centres of inner Sydney.

Together PopovBass and Cornerstone have created a historic moment for a historic building, as the lights blink on once again in one of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks.
