Barangaroo House | Timber Design Award

Barangaroo House took out the prize for Best Timber Cladding at the Timber Design Awards this month. The 3 storey hospitality venue features 42mm acetylated treated concentric timber dowels which wrap around the building as a façade. Individually steam bent into shape, and charred, creating a unique façade with rich dark appearance and low maintenance needs. Subtle imperfections in the timber lend a softer, warmer nature to the built form, in a precinct primarily dominated by glass and aluminium.

INDE Awards

We are very excited that the Barangaroo House building has been shortlisted for the social space category of the 2018 INDE awards for the Asia Pacific region.

The INDE.Awards are organised and presented by Indesign Media Asia Pacific with the intent of recognising the Asia Pacific region’s most progressive design and architecture on a global stage. The INDE.Awards are the new benchmark for design accolades across the diverse and dynamic Asia Pacific region, assessing designers and designs on the region’s own terms, not the terms of the world’s other design centres.

Biennale Architettura: Repair

We are delighted that Waterloo Youth Centre for Weave has been selected as one of 15 projects to be exhibited at the Australian pavilion at this years Venice Architecture Biennale. Entitled Repair, the exhibition is being curated by Baracco Wright Architects in collaboration with artist Linda Tegg. The installation will highlight the importance of environmental rehabilitation in architectural practice. Each of the works will be presented in high definition video in a setting which includes a grassland installation comprising 10,000 plants representing 65 endangered species from across Australia.

Denman Memorial Hall – Development Application Lodged

The Development Application for the refurbishment and partial rebuild of Denman Memorial Hall located in the Upper Hunter Valley was lodged this week.  The refurbished hall will act as a multi-purpose arts and performance space, capable of providing flexible space to suit a wider range of community uses, including performing arts, theatre, live music and cinema, as well as local festivals such as the Hunter Valley Wine and Food Fair.

opening: barangaroo house

Barangaroo House opened to the public just before Christmas. House Bar on the ground floor and Smoke rooftop bar are great spots to watch the sunset over the harbour. Bea fine dining restaurant on the middle floor includes a diverse menu utilising native Australian ingredients designed by chefs Cory Campbell and executive chef Matt Moran. Our favourite dish is simply called chocolate and caramel, and it is shaped like a miniature version of the building.
