1 Denison Street in North Sydney is a new office building occupied by Nine Entertainment. The elegant design by Bates Smart Architects stands out from the commercial buildings surrounding it. On the façade of the 1.4 billion dollar tower, the architects selected DecoPanel Flat Sheet Cladding in a custom finish from DECO.
The prime location close to Sydney Harbour made the choice of façade materials especially important; with challenges from direct sunlight, ocean air, and traffic exhaust fumes; the material needed to be especially durable. The architects chose DECO's DecoPanel with a custom DecoWood® powder coat finish.
