At the heart of this project is city making. We have sought to make a landscape that reinterprets and honours the uniqueness and history of this place. The ground of the new building, kiosk and public space is formed in stone, curved and folded up to create steps, and a place to display the site’s archaeological findings from Sydney’s colonial and Victorian-era. A bronze line has been incised through the floor of the public domain and into the lobby, marking the edge of the water from the pre-European estuary.
fjcstudio acknowledges all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we work.
We recognise their continuing connection to Country and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
We extend this acknowledgement to Indigenous People globally, recognising their human rights and freedoms as articulated in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
