In Sydney, the heart of Australia, you will find the infamous Barangaroo restaurant. Sitting on the water’s edge, the striking exterior immediately draws the eye thanks to the use of oversized glazing paired with a dark exterior.

The three-story building is an asymmetric oval shape, with a distinctive overhang constructed from black curved metal with cladding to the ground floor. Beyond the metal structure are large walls of curved glazing, configured with structural glazing and multiple sets of slim framed sliding door systems.

Each of the restaurant floors has a different purpose; the ground floor is for relaxed drinks, the first floor is for dining and the rooftop is a more formal drinking area. With this in mind, the building structure needed to demonstrate flexibility to suit each of the floors. Using glass as a primary material, with minimal framework, ensures any interior or exterior themes can work within the space.

The panoramah! ah!38 system has been developed to achieve unique results, this time in the form of curved glass. By using a mix of structural glazing and sliding doors, a completely glass façade can be seen from the surrounding streets.

Sliding doors ensure the restaurant has multiple access points for diners, to enjoy an al fresco dining experience. The staff members can also travel easily around the building thanks to the multiple access points.
