We recently entered the competition for the 4-6 Bligh Street Hotel tower, a very enjoyable collaboration with our friends at PTW Architects and March Studio. Our entry takes inspiration from Sydney’s greatest natural asset – the coastal sandstone cliff forms and natural and man made pools at the cities water edges.

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.
