Art Pharmacy were engaged by developers Billbergia to develop a high level art strategy for the new development site at 88 Walker Street. When complete, the building will be North Sydney’s tallest tower, a 48-storey mixed use hotel and commercial development designed by Fitzpatrick and Partners. It is also a centre piece to the precinct renewal taking place within Mount Street and Denison Street.
The development includes the adjoining site of 86 Walker Street, an 1895 heritage listed fire station and home to the Fire House Hotel.
Art Pharmacy were to provide a narrative, strategy and artist suggestions for a large public artwork wrapping around the building base at Spring Street and Little Spring Street. Central to our role was providing a strategic and well considered approach to this highly visible artwork opportunity, incorporating an awareness of legacy, and the unique and hyper-local values within the North Sydney community.
