Chifley Plaza Sydney by SJB

The shopping mall is making a comeback – but not in the way you might expect. SJB reimagines the retail experience at Sydney’s iconic Chifley Plaza through a clever pairing of Manhattan Art Deco nostalgia and a design strategy that appeals to our hearts and our feet.

St Andrews College Centennial Chapel Christchurch by Architectus

Designed by Architectus, St Andrew’s College Centennial Chapel is part of a new generation of civic buildings emerging from the earthquake-damaged Christchurch.

Collins Square Events Centre by Carr Design Group

Carr Design Group combines corporate, residential and hospitality design principles for a diverse and flexible function space at the Collins Square Events Centre. Have they created the ultimate new design typology for next-gen hospitality? We think yes…

Gilbert + Tobin Barangaroo by Woods Bagot

Design that reflects its local environment is a huge focus for practising architects and designers, and Sydney’s Barangaroo development is a hotbed for this kind of thinking. Gilbert + Tobin’s new Barangaroo workplace, designed by Woods Bagot, draws inspiration from the rich history and landscape of the site, while nestling nicely into Sydney’s new commercial identity.

Designed by Warren and Mahoney, the new head office for New Zealand law firm Russell McVeagh, challenges the antiquated workplace approach with a daring, material-rich agile strategy.
