Barangaroo will return 22 hectares of former industrial use land to the people of Sydney, which will include public parks, cycleways, a commercial and business district as well as a world class hotel. Situated on the western foreshore of the Sydney CBD, Barangaroo will be a world leading example of environmental and social sustainability.
The Barangaroo Delivery Authority is committed to sustainability and their new offices in the Sydney CBD overlook the Barangaroo site, and includes a public space with a viewing platform where the entire site can viewed. The office was designed by Woods Bagot who are world leaders in creating these types of environments, their team, led by Tamara White, produced an exceptional outcome.
The office environment features predominately reused furniture and artefacts from the Barangaroo site to demonstrate sustainability. BrandCulture created ‘A Sustainable Conversation’, centred on the metaphorical second life of these once disregarded items.
At the office entry an introduction to the sustainable story is provided via a three-metre display panel made entirely of Re-Board, an environmentally friendly print and display product. The raised wooden viewing platform may initially go unnoticed, but the ‘sustainable’ conversation reveals the wood was once part of the working wharves that are soon to be demolished to give way to a beautiful public park, designed by Peter Walker (also responsible for the design of the National 9/11 Memorial in New York).
The conversation on sustainability within the office comes to life though cubes (made from Re-Board) scattered throughout the office and tags hung off chairs. These create awareness of not only the reused furniture but also provide tips to help achieve the universal goal of a sustainable future. It’s hard not to pick up a cube or not notice the tags aren’t actually furniture labels. Also dotted around the office are reminders of ‘Zero Waste’ ‘Water Positive’ and ‘Community Wellbeing’ in the form of the Barangaroo aerial outline, each one attached to the tops of the desk dividers or sit playfully on shelves and cabinets.
