The Mint

The Mint Café is a coffee shop located in The Mint Heritage Building with a mixture of dining settings.

Intact Projects were engaged as Head Contractors to complete The Mint Café's premises at 10 Macquarie Street, SYDNEY NSW.

The base building is a heritage structure with limitations to design change.  To overcome this a self supporting structure was built within the existing building (a shell within a shell), including a raised floor to reticulate the new hydraulic services.

The kitchen portion of the café was constructed as a shell within a shell to preserve the heritage fabric.  This is a welcoming café with finishes that blend seamlessly with the existing heritage fabric.
