CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC

The Kolling Building is a much-needed $99 million addition to Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital campus. Austral Bricks Terraçade terracotta façade system adds colour, texture and more than a little drama to the building’s eastern and western facades, dramatically “bookending” the 12-storey building.

The south-eastern and south-western corners are clad in Terraçade TN Gibson, a classic terracotta colour. The eastern elevation is highlighted with a broad panel of Terraçade XP in Kimberley Linear, accented with bands of Bunbury Linear.

Economy and appearance were factors in Terraçade’s selection, explains project architect Chris Carr. “It’s good value for money. We wanted that terracotta feel, reminiscent of the brickwork that the original hospital was built from. And Terraçade is texturally and visually a good material to use.”

Sealing the deal were Terraçade’s low maintenance needs and long-term weathering potential.
