Barangaroo Development Bid
HASSELL was selected as one of two finalists to bid for development rights of the 22 hectare Waterfront Site north of Darling Harbour Sydney. Commissioned by Brookfields Multiplex and working in collaboration with Foster and Partners, KPF London and Tzannes and Associates, HASSELL generated a master plan and as well as schematic designs for 12 new structures and expansive landscape and public spaces for the new district.
Concentrating on the principles of urban design and sustainability, the master plan and building design sought to achieve a new level of sustainable building for Sydney, including proposing a commercial building which will redefine sustainable commercial design by achieving a “6 Star and beyond” rating under the Green Star Building rating scheme. This and other initiatives were to be part of the legacy that the development will provide for other future developments.
For such an important site in the future of the region, the master plan aimed to cast a vision for the next stage of development in a sustainable Sydney.
