The site forms part of a new urban space linking the foreshore to Wynyard Walk via Transport Place. The three level restaurant building mediates the misalignement of the residential buildings along Barangaroo to the north and King Street Wharf to the south.
Nestled in a new urban space, this building is experienced “in-the-round”.
The form of our dynamic proposal evolved from a detailed study of opportunities and constrains.
The upper levels boldly cantilever seven metres to create sheltered ground floor spaces and a daring dining experience above.
Corners and edges accentuate views to and from the site.
A range of dramatic interior spaces ensures that patrons not seated at the waters edge are provided with a memorable dining experience.
The consciously heavy coreten screen is finely calibrated to optimise both solar control and views to the harbour. The weathered patina of the metal surface provides a subtle reference to the industrial heritage of the site and provides a dramatic contrast to the refined detailing of adjacent developments.
By day the facade appears grounded and massive.
By night, animated by the life of the interior, the facade takes on a warm glow revealing the activity within.
