DISCOVERY POINT BUILDINGS 11, 12 & 13
WOLLI CREEK, NSW
The Discovery Point development is located in Wolli Creek, approximately 8km south-west of the Sydney CBD. The project is located in the Central Precinct within the Northern ‘Waterfront’ Precinct, formerly industrial in use but is undergoing re-development into a high density mixed use neighbourhood, taking advantage of easy access to public transport, the airport and motorways, as well as its location on the banks of the Cooks River.
Building 11, 12 and 13 site abuts the Wolli Creek Station and is bounded by Brodie Sparks Drive, Chisholm Street and Sparks Lane. Brodie Sparks Drive and the railway station is intended to become the ‘heart’ of the Wolli Creek Special Precinct.
A unity of urban elements as a coherent whole - plazas, legible streetscapes, tower form and podium - create the sense of place and completes the northern ‘waterfront’ precinct.
Striking architectural form for Building 13 maximises its landmark potential to create a recognisable central precinct address, responding to and complementing the context of existing and proposed development. Spatial drama is created through the play of verticality that “touches the sky” and horizontality that defines the streetscape. Building 13 establishes a sense of arrival for those disembarking from Wolli Creek station and a sense of activation generally to Brodie Sparks Drive.
