Stoddart perforated metal panels played a pivotal role in the creation of Wynyard Walk and the Clarence Street station entrance at Sydney’s Wynyard Station. Designed by Woods Bagot, the new entrance and walkway project incorporates more than 1,600 m2 of perforated metal in more than 1,500 panels, all fabricated by Stoddart. Wynyard Walk consists of a series of above- and below-ground urban interventions and links Wynyard Station to the western corridor of Sydney’s CBD. The project is based around the concept of “flow,” with the design language referencing the movement of water as a metaphor for the flow of pedestrians.
The stainless steel panels supplied by Stoddart were used for internal and external applications in the new entrance on Clarence Street as well as for the internal fitout of new portal entrances and tunnel lining works. The intricate patterns were executed in Stoddart’s factory in Karawatha, Brisbane, with 3D-modelling software used to ensure panels fitted into the pattern with precision. The project was the first stage of a $160 million upgrade of Wynyard Station. The station now features wider access points as well as new entrances from Clarence Street and Kent Street. stoddartinfrastructure.com.au
