For more than 14,500 years, Barangaroo has been an important place of human congregation, a significant place of resource abundance and cultural significance to the Eora Nation.
At the turn of the 21st century, Barangaroo was more or less an abandoned industrial port terminal – a disused unsustainable eye sore.
However, that started to change in the 2000s with a major waterfront renewal project spearheaded by the NSW Government that reclaimed Barangaroo from a decommissioned industrial site and completely transformed the environment in a few short decades.
Today, Barangaroo is a dynamic cultural, residential, business and civic hub that intertwines the cultural heritage of the past with the natural beauty of the Sydney Harbour with the modern economy of today.
Comprised of extraordinary public open spaces alongside world-class sustainable architecture and public art, the Barangaroo precinct has a remarkable history.
Of particular importance to StraBe’s involvement in the Barangaroo project, was the birth of a new outdoor furniture suite, aptly named Barangaroo.
Barangaroo, the magnificent 22-hectare waterfront revitalisation development, stands as a remarkable testament to the transformation of a once-abandoned industrial site into a vibrant hub of commerce, residences, and community.
Spearheaded by the NSW Government and in collaboration with esteemed developers, architects, and innovators, this project showcases a remarkable revitalization of the landscape.
More than half of the precinct is adorned with breathtaking public spaces, seamlessly blending with world-class sustainable architecture, captivating public art installations, and enticing new venues for living, working, dining, and unwinding.
Barangaroo comprises three interconnected precincts that each possess their own unique charm: Barangaroo South, Central Barangaroo, and Barangaroo Reserve.
Commuters and visitors can conveniently access the area via the Barangaroo Ferry Wharf, and in 2024, a new Barangaroo Sydney Metro station will further enhance accessibility. Additionally, the underground pedestrian passage known as Wynyard Walk offers a delightful shortcut for pedestrians between Wynyard and Barangaroo South.
Through a collaborative, sustainable, and imaginative approach, the western waterfront of Sydney Harbour has been reborn, breathing new life into the surroundings, and captivating the hearts of locals and visitors alike in the state of New South Wales.
StraBe was fortunate enough to be engaged in design collaboration, supply and installation of custom-designed streetscape furniture which has shaped the Barangaroo precinct into what it is today.
StraBe is immensely proud to collaborate with exceptional partners who played a vital role in the success of the Barangaroo project. We extend our thanks to Lend Lease, Landscape Solutions, PWP Architects, Infrastructure NSW, and Barangaroo Delivery Authority.
ABOUT BARANGAROO SUITE
The Barangaroo suite is a conceptually designed outdoor furniture range that is inspired by the natural environment of it’s original project application, where the deep wavy water of Sydney Harbour laps against the shoreline of the ancient waterfront that is known as Barangaroo today.
Fostering recreation, expression, celebration and community, the Barangaroo streetscape furniture suite features curvature that is reminiscent of the waves that grace the surface of the ocean waters.
Comprised of a robust, surface-mounted steel frame and complete with a selection of Spotted Gum or timber look battens, this iconic outdoor furniture range draws attention to the natural surroundings of the landscapes it occupies.
