I love this building and it’s surrounding gardens and trickle of the Derwent river next to it in an overgrown gully.... enjoyed drawing it while I was home last month....it is in a couple of my final art works for ‘imaginary aesthetic territories’ @johncurtingallery opening this Thursday 26th July...
(The approach to this building is so dramatic...as you come around the corner it suddenly looms up at you...standing sentinel directly under the mountain...it’s oriented directly facing the road, so it appears to have no perspective, and even when you do approach the building and move around it, you realise that it is like a giant wafer risen from the ground, kind of like a pop up book. The building is tall, but extremely shallow, only 2 rooms deep, so it seems kind of unstable, yet obviously it’s firmly rooted in the ground..)

"#architecture is the will of an epoch translated into space." (Ludwig Mies van Der Rohe)

Right across from the Opera House, with a view on the beautiful #sydney Harbour, there's a residential and multi-use complex called Bennelong Centre.
This complex consists of three main buildings that include not only apartments but also cinemas, restaurants and shops, and it's one of the most prestigious places in the city (it hosts two of the most expensive apartments to ever be sold in #australia)

The Bennelong Centre, also called #benelongapartments, are sited in what 200 years ago was the location for Aboriginal women to congregate on the rising tide, eat shellfish by the fire and tell stories.
It is named after a fundamental person for the history of the city: Bennelong was in fact a figurehead for relations between First Nations and colonists, and he was the first First Nation person to live voluntarily in the settlement created by colonists.
Savema supplied its stones for the #exteriordesign of this project.

⛪ You'd be forgiven for thinking this old school building was in a paddock somewhere in the middle of the bush... Lo and behold it's right in the middle of Sydney!
Do you know where to find it? .

"A real #building is one on which the eye can light and stay lit." (Ezra Pound)

The Bond Building, now known as Chifley Tower, is one of the most recognisable buildings on #sydneyskyline. Located at 2 #chifleysquare, this premium 43-story #skyscraper designed by Architects Kohn Pedersen Fox is sited on one of the highest points in #sydneycbd, close to cultural landmarks like the Opera House or the Museum of Contemporary Art, and it's also one of the tallest buildings in #sydney. In 2000 it became even taller, as a 3-metre lighting rod was added, extending the original height from 241 meters to 244.

It was initially called "The Bond Building" as its construction was financed by the Bond Corporation. When the ownership of the #tower was transferred to another company, it was renamed "Chifley Tower", both because it addresses Chifley Square on the northern corner and to pay homage to the former Australian Prime Minister Ben Chifley.
As William Louie of #kohnpedersenfox stated, this project "was conceived as a building that would stand amongst the most recognised and timeless pieces of #architecture in the world".
Savema supplied its stones for the #exteriordesign.

Project: #bondbuilding, now #chifleytower

"#architecture is not an inspirational business, it's a rational procedure to do sensible and hopefully beautiful things." (Harry Seidler)

Location, services and efficiency are the fundamental qualities of No.1 O'Connell Street, gorgeous #skyscraper designed by Architects #ptwarchitects and sited in the heart of CBD financial core in Sydney, #australia.
With its 166 meters of height and its 28 levels of high quality office spaces, it represents one of the most prestigious commercial properties in #sydney.

With its beautiful #facade designed with a combination of glass and #granite, No.1 O'Connell Street stands out amongst Sydney's premium buildings. But there's another reason why this #building is so remarkable, besides the fact that it is visually impressive from every angle: it is in fact a highly #sustainable structure.
It presents its own comprehensive recycling service, and has been rated with 4,5 stars in the NABERS Energy Rating and 3,5 stars in the NABERS Water Rating.
Savema supplied its Porkala Red granite for the #exteriordesign of this #tower.
