SES HQ in Marrickville almost completed

Time for an update on the construction of the Marrickville SES Headquarters building – A project we have spent a lot of time on of late. Contractors are around a month off completion and it’s great to see the finishing trades wrapping up on site. See the full project HERE.


Triple-glazed facade of the Members Area looking onto the “low-water” native garden along Railway Road. Boundary line relics recall the row of grand terraces that once lined this frontage. Landscape by Aspect.


The “Traumatised Shed” design concept for the project is perhaps best described in this shot. A simple, cost effective industrial building with corners and edges augmented to signal building occupation.


The Members Area, a sun-filled interior.


Contextually sensitive design – industrial orange!
