Herbert Smith Freehills Law Library

Herbert Smith Freehills Law Library, University of Sydney

A curvilinear stainless steel ‘light-tower’

Below the open space sequence of lawns, terraces and plazas at the University of Sydney, we positioned the Herbert Smith Freehills Law Library which supports the Law School and legal studies in other faculties and schools of the University.

A sculptural curvilinear ‘light-tower’ of stainless steel penetrates the platform of lawns, terraces and plazas delineating this open space, and creating an architectural ‘figure’ against the silent backdrop of the existing Fisher Library stack as it announces the presences of the new Law Library below and draws in and reflects natural daylight.
