Shimmering Shingles at Westpac Barangaroo


Allplastics provided Perspex Pearlescent Azure shapes for Westpac’s newly opened office building at Barangaroo in Sydney as an attractive and welcoming entrance to the newly built commercial premises designed by Geyer.

The overarching theme for Barangaroo was to focus on organic themes and Australiana, and the shingles represent a skin wrapping the curved walls of the forum and reception areas. The overlapping of the shingles emulates such natural phenomena as snakeskin or fish scales.  The use of different materials signifies elements of nature with timber panels of varying shades, contrasting with the occasional vibrant glossy shingle and the iridescent shimmer of the Pearlescent Blue Perspex laminated to MDF panels. The shingles have a thickness to them which was made up of the 3mm thick Perspex sheet with a mitred 19mm edging, so the panels appeared to be solid with a lustrous sheen which works extremely well as a highlight.

The installation was expertly installed by CIVARDI Furniture
