With this transformation and extension of two heritage buildings we have developed a concept of suspension, contrast and complement that challenges the established heritage adaptation paradigm; a light ‘anti-extension’ that floats respectfully above the articulated weight of heritage. Workplace, retail and cultural/events uses are woven within new and old fabric. Health and sustainability are central and integral to the design: 100% fresh air 100% green power, 90% recycling rate and a 24% reduction in embodied carbon.
Located in the heart of Sydney, the ANZ tower successfully balances urbanism and sustainability considerations with commercial requirements to create a rich and considered architectural expression.
Darling Quarter is a true integration of urban design, architecture, and landscape architecture toward the creation of a public place within the city. We have sought to enhance the joy and beauty of Darling Harbour, one of the most popular public places in Australia, and to do so in a way that imbues it with a sense of quality and permanence. Darling Quarter is where the western edge of the city and the park meet and is celebrated in a series of defined public spaces, including a pedestrian boulevard, parklands, gateway, children’s playground, and activated edges lined with cafés and restaurants. It is a place for everyone, for city workers at lunchtime and in the evenings, families, children, the young and old, visitors and locals.
