Devonshire St – Finalist

City of Sydney recently granted planning permission for this highly nuanced design which will be judged by an international expert panel at the 2017 WAF in Berlin in November. The design articulates the historic reference and traditional materials in dealing with its context. Large openings on the brick skin reveal the industrial character of black steel structures behind. The outline of the original gabled warehouse building is traced onto the brick walls with glazed white bricks, serving as a subtle memory of what once existed on site.

In the spirit of reconciliation MHNDU acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community.
We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
