Campos Barangaroo by Woods Bagot

Designed in conjunction with the lobby space in Tower Three, also by Woods Bagot, the boutique-scale project provided the design team with the challenge of designing a coffee kiosk that seamlessly integrated with the grandeur of the lobby architecture.

Acting as the southern book-end for the International Towers development and the threshold between the public realm and broader Barangaroo precinct, the Tower Three lobby required a formal design response that celebrates the building’s civic nature. The kiosk was required to not only respond to the civic formality of the base building architecture and surrounding lobby space, it also needed to present as a considered object able to stand alone as a sculptural element within the grandeur of the tower’s lobby and greater Barangaroo precinct.

Drawing inspiration from the geometric grid on the base building’s facade, the concept design for the kiosk was inspired by a sense of purity and simplicity of form. Featuring a lustrous brass frame likened to a sculptural installation, Campos Barangaroo imbues a sense of place and permanency through a refined interiors scheme expressed via the modern application of traditional materials.

Affectionately termed the “jewellery box” for its shimmering, lustrous aesthetic, Campos Barangaroo was designed as an integral part of the overarching design strategy for International Towers Sydney, Tower Three. More akin to an art gallery than a corporate workplace environment, the ephemeral brass form has been positioned as a jewel within the lobby expanse, its refined design forming an elegant meeting place for the building’s tenants and their guests. Featuring a reduced palette of brass and grey marble, the scheme provides a strong sense of coordination, restrained glamour and quality.

Through a minimalist brass frame and feature brass mesh siding, the ephemeral form of the kiosk provides a striking and sculptural element within the expansive volume of the tower’s lobby. An elegant insertion into the space, Campos Barangaroo celebrates old-world craftsmanship with a contemporary form.

The Italian-style coffee bar is accompanied by an outdoor seating zone that comprises bespoke furniture in brass and marble to match the materiality of the kiosk. The clean, industrial lines of the brass box structure, together with the brass mesh siding, grey marble counter and matching outdoor furniture work together in a considered and innovative way for a modern and minimalist outcome.

Each component and detail of the kiosk design has been curated with precision and intent, helping to emit a feeling of grandeur and luxury. The quality finishes of the kiosk not only reflect the Campos brand, but also provide a fitting environment for Campos’ high energy, fast-paced team of baristas to create theatre on display.
