NEW ROLE FOR GAMES VENUE
Jacaranda Square is part of the redevelopment of Sydney Olympic Park from a large-scale event space to an everyday role which includes plans for a residential and working population of 30,000.
Bowral50™ Blue 50 mm bricks are laid as paving highlights to accentuate the set-out and create “rays” stemming from the original point. The strongly-directional stretcher bond brings to mind the lanes of an athletics track.
A low, freestanding brick wall faced in a blend of green, fully-glazed bricks and Bowral Gertrudis Brown clay bricks provides casual seating and envelops the square. The balance of colours progressively shifts as the walling moves away from the station entrance.
The crisp edges and deep, earthy colours of Bowral dry-pressed bricks blend style and function to present a clean, modern aesthetic. These premium quality bricks are available across Australia in standard 76 mm thickness and in a slim 50 mm format.
Colours: Gertrudis Brown, Bowral Blue
