Smart Design Studio - Sydney Architects


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
