This week will see the completed installation of “The Bay” our newest project for the Kiaora Lands Redevelopment in Double Bay, Sydney. The 144 square metre building façade depicting an abstracted but lyrical interpretation of Double Bay’s geography was designed by Bondi artist Jade Oakley.
Fabricated by Metal Stone Wood from Murwillumbah, the artwork pushes the perforated metal aesthetic one step further. Not only do the elevated metal layers create depth and three dimensionality but there is a beautiful organic rhythm in the artist’s stylisation of water, land and trees. We worked in collaboration with Creative Road, Woolworths, Woollahra Council, project architects Nettleton Tribe and builders Ganellan to realize the project which has turned around in 4 months. Record time for a public artwork of this scale!
