Barangaroo South

In 2008, Lendlease engaged international architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to lead the bid team for the master plan of the Barangaroo South. ASPECT Studios and OCULUS established joint venture company ASPECT | OCULUS, to lead the public realm design of the streets, squares, waterfront edges and public places.

Barangaroo South brings the vision of a connected, sustainable and innovative Sydney one step closer to reality.
ASPECT | OCULUS’ design of the public domain unlocks unprecedented connection between the city and harbour in this unique precinct, providing an intimate human scale experience, strikingly juxtaposed to the energy and intensity of the CBD.

The opening of Barangaroo South reflects a broader trend to blending urban life where we can work, live and play in the CBD in a collection of high quality public and private spaces. The design leverages the extension of the city’s street grid into an intimate network of streets and laneways, creating new layers of public activity for the city which respond to topography and circulation. The project introduces balance between density and amenity in a global climate of urban population growth and rapid densification of the city. Disused, disconnected infrastructure has been reimagined as green, thriving and connected public spaces.
