City of Sydney Town Hall House

Welcome to the City of Sydney!

Development of a signage system for the iconic Sydney city council headquarters. The challenge: establishing a sense of identity for the City’s headquarters with universal appeal, adding visual interest and serving a practical wayfinding function. The system had to work in synergy with Smart Design Studio’s architectural design, the culture of the council, the city’s heritage and accessibility considerations.

The project is being realised in 2 stages. This first stage (shown here) is to implement temporary signage as the architectural renovation has already taken place. The next phase currently under manufacture is for a permanent installation of faceted and extruded signage that complements the shifting planes inherent in William Smart’s architectural design
