situated at the entrance to one of the newly completed international towers sydney is ‘campos barangaroo’, a permanent, pop-up style coffee kiosk. completed by woods bagot, who also designed the lobby space in tower three, the micro-scale project provided the design team with the challenge of designing a coffee kiosk that seamlessly integrated with the grandeur of the lobby architecture.

the design itself references the geometric grid on the base building’s facade, woods bagot wanted to instill a sense of purity and simplicity of form which in turn, manifests into a brass frame likened to a sculptural installation. nicknamed ‘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. 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 workers and visitors.



paired with a minimalist brass frame and feature brass mesh siding, the ephemeral form of the kiosk provides a striking and sculptural element within the expansive height of the tower’s lobby. 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 harmonious way to result in the contemporary and minimalist outcome.
