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.
