Darling Quarter is where the western
edge of the city and the park meet
and is celebrated in a series of
defined public spaces, including a
pedestrian boulevard, parklands,
gateway, children's playground,
and activated edges lined with
cafes and restaurants. It is a place
for everyone, for city workers at
lunchtime and in the evenings,
families, children, the young and old,
visitors and locals.

The role of the interior design team was to translate


CBA’s ABW brief into a workplace that aligned with CBA’s
cultural, business, operational and property needs.
The design process commenced with a research trip to
Northern Europe led by Lend Lease and CBA to gain an
in-depth understanding of ABW and to see if this work
style was suitable for the Bank. Upon the team’s return to
Australia they developed a full-scale prototype for testing
purposes. Feedback from this pilot study was essential
to support the business case for change. Once signed off,
they worked closely with the various business units as
part of the change management process. The result is a
highly successful workplace that integrates effective work
practices to drive efficiency and a work life balance.

The outcome is evident in the seamless integration of

The design of the whole
playground achieved a balance of
exciting and challenging elements
that allow children to develop their
strength and agility with places
that were more subtle, allow for
interaction with nature (aromatic
plants and butterfly attracting
species) and places to comfortably
sit and take in the action of
others. Opportunities for fast
and active play as well as slower,
contemplative play. The waterplay
space, is completely unique to
this project and was designed to
reference two aspects of the site’s
former history: the small streams
that ran from the ridges through
to the back of the harbour prior
to European settlement and the
early industries that were built on
the site (steel foundry and steam
driven flour mill).

The playground enabled ASPECT


Studios to propose different
types of play experience that had
not previously been constructed
in Australia – specifically the
waterplay area. The concrete
streams and boulders combine
with the industrial-looking water
pumping and manipulation
equipment to provide a rich play
environment.

“ The thing I am most proud of is the
investment. Both intellectually and
financially - from the client, to the
State Government land owners, to
the project team from design through

quality of the public domain, the
integrated playground, and the
new connections to and from the

elements to the project as they
are new free and accessible

WELCOME TO THE CAMERA
ACTION
PLAYHOUSE! As part of Lend Lease’s
commitment to community and
placemaking, Darling Quarter
boasts Australia’s only purpose-
built 300 seat children’s theatre.
It is a multi-purpose theatre
and performance facility that
will contribute to the family
entertainment events of the
Darling Harbour precinct. In
conjunction with the playground,
the community green and public
domain, it is a thoughtful example
of social sustainability.

“The new theatre at Darling


Quarter represents a visionary
commitment to the performing
arts for young people. It is the
first and only purpose-built
theatre for young audiences
and their families in Australia
and, as such, is a landmark
development. With the wonderful
Monkey Baa Theatre for Young
people as resident company
and playing host to a diversity of
other performances, the theatre
will, along with the fabulous
playground outside its front door,
create rich experiences for young
people and their families
year round.”

Soft light
SAFE PLAY
Spiers + Major is an award-winning
design practice that uses light to
enhance the experience of the
visual environment. The practice
was engaged by Lend Lease in the
role of ‘Lighting Design Advisor’. This
required the designers to review
Lend Lease’s requirements for
the illumination of both the public
domain and the Commonwealth
Bank’s building shell and core interior
lighting. The result is Australia’s first
illuminated night-time playground
and a public domain and building
that sensitively and dynamically
lights up the precinct.

“ The lighting design for Darling


Quarter has proved to be highly
innovative and also succeeds in
creating a vibrant and pleasant
experience for everyone that uses
the development after dark.”

EAT
TO
THE
BEAT
Darling Quarter is all about an innovative
mix of authentic and original food concepts
creating a magnet not just for city workers and
residents but for all Sydneysiders and visitors
to Darling Harbour. A focus on providing a
quality retail offer without losing sight of
variety and affordable prices differentiates
the precinct from its neighbours and cements
it as the ultimate Darling Harboureating
destination.

The design brief was to set out and create a


place that people would love, using material
that will add warmth, complement the natural
environment and add colour to the destination.
Vibrant shop-fronts and bold feature lighting
make lasting statements about the character of
the precinct — young, creative, exciting, alive
and daring. Custom designed furniture mirrors
the energy and innovation of the strip.

As part of the public domain, ‘the community


green’ is a beautifully designed public park
that encourages people to sit, relax and enjoy
their food in a spectacular outdoor setting.
