Smart Design Studio - Sydney Architects



Smart Design Studio is part of the hand-picked team of prominent Australian and international architectural practices that will help realise Central Barangaroo, the final stage of the Barangaroo urban renewal project on Sydney’s CBD waterfront. Developed by Aqualand in partnership with Scentre Group, this precinct will be world-leading in both design and sustainability. It forms part of Australia’s first carbon-neutral precinct and will become one of its finest public spaces, with open plazas, commercial buildings and a retail destination surrounded by a new two-hectare park on Sydney Harbour. Smart Design Studio’s premium-grade atrium office building, located at the gateway to Central Barangaroo, will be exemplar of the modern collaborative workplace of the future – deeply embedded in the context of Hickson Road and with functionality, flexibility and amenity at its core.

Lacebark is a gateway building to a new precinct in Sydney’s Hills Shire, to be known as Norwest Quarter. Split down its length into two distinct slender parallel forms, it’s one of nine towers in the bold residential masterplan that transforms over 3.8 hectares of greenfield land into a carbon neutral hub for over 2000 residents. The elegantly sculpted building is predominately brick, drawing reference from the site’s rich history as a brick and tile manufacturing plant. Generous perimeter balconies with solid horizontal balustrades provide repetition and modulation through contrast of light and shade; their curved concave shapes creating a sculptural expression whilst inviting northern sun. At the base of the 13-storey building are two circular drums housing the retail spaces and resident’s amenities. For more click here
