'THE TERRACE' FOR ART & ABOUT

SCOPE OF WORKS |PUBLIC INSTALLATION + LANDSCAPE DESIGN

On our first visit to the site, we were confronted with hoardings and scaffolding associated with the restoration works occurring to the facade of our backdrop; Sydney’s Town Hall. With the introduction of bold colour blocking, sculptural planting, a playful bar front and a canopy of dripping Wisteria above the stage, the once desolate terrace was fit for entertaining’

 'Art and About' is an annual event, run by the City of Sydney that introduces artworks, of all denominations into the nooks and crannies of our city and encourages projects that engage, involve and inspire audiences. For their 2015 festival, we were selected to help transform Sydney’s Town Hall's Marconi terrace into an event space and terrace bar. The aim of ‘The Terrace’ was to harness the city's live music community and provide a venue for free live music for 9 nights during the festival.
