A FORMER RAG TRADE BUILDING IN SURRY HILLS REDEVELOPED INTO A
PRESTIGE COMMERCIAL, RETAIL AND FOOD & BEVERAGE HUB.

Holt & Hart is a former rag trade building in inner city Surry Hills, originally built in 1968. The adaptive reuse plan was developed by BLP architects in collaboration with SJB architects by whom it was redeveloped into an A-grade building with the addition of an eighth floor, adjoining roof terrace and an overall fa├žade upgrade. The large multi-story floor plate appropriate to its previous incarnation as a fashion warehouse was reconfigured as a series of flexible strata office suites oriented towards light via a central full-height void, or large windows and balconies onto vibrant Holt Street. Today, the upper levels of Holt & Hart house some of the city's most creative fashion, design and media entities including ASOS, Profero and Cue Clothing Co. At ground level, heavy hitting hospitality partners the likes of Porteno, 121BC and Muum Maam have turned a once sleepy street into a new urban lifestyle hub.
