Facade designs that tell a story
As the face of a building, a facade is what gives a structure its looks, personality, character and appeal. It influences everything we feel about a building. And how we feel in it, too, controlling things like light, temperature and privacy. But some of the best facade designs also have extra special significance, linking a structure to its surroundings, purpose, local history or culture.
Like these awe-inspiring building facades, that each tell their own unique story. Which one is your favourite?
Artwork facade designs: Cowper Street apartments, Granville
We worked in collaboration with architects Johannsen & Associates (AJA) and artists Kath Fries and Rhona Pryor to create this metal masterpiece.
Adorning a residential block in Granville, it’s much more than just a building face – it’s a piece of public art. Named The Way of the River, the facade illustrates the importance of the local Duck River system and the traditional land of the Darug people, upon which the building sits.
Symbolising the idea of flow and change and the relationship between people and place, the facade features lines from local poet Todd Turner’s piece Grace. The words sweep around the exterior, flowing to a giant mural map of Duck River, represented by a pattern of leaves perforated into the metal.
We custom manufactured each facade panel to exact specifications using CAD drawing and precision tooling, for a seamless installation that’s as meaningful as it is stunning.
