DecoPanel, a highly popular architectural flat sheet cladding from DECO Australia has been specified for the facade of the 37-storey commercial office tower at 1 Denison Street in Sydney.

North Sydney’s newest billion-dollar landmark, the building is designed by leading Australian architecture firm, Bates Smart Architects for Winten Property Group. Featuring a world-class design, the project is set to become a stylish business, lifestyle and social hub while housing high-profile corporations such as Nine Entertainment, Microsoft and SAP.

DecoPanel aluminium cladding has been selected to form the building’s lower timber-look façade. Featuring a custom DecoWood timber grain powdercoat created exclusively for the project, the solid aluminium flat sheets will wrap the entire lower half of the building, face-fixed with colour matched caps to bring the natural element of timber into the city’s urban landscape.

“Our products and their quality truly speak for themselves. Having them selected for such a high-profile project is really a tribute to the hours of design, innovation and quality control we implement across all our products, right here in Australia. Seeing them used in such an inspirational way is really a tribute to the architects and their design vision,” DECO Australia’s director, Ross Doonan said.

In addition to the striking timber aesthetic, DecoPanel also provides the durability to withstand direct sunlight, ocean spray and exhaust fumes from city traffic while meeting key building standards as a non-combustible and fire-safe product tested and certified by the CSIRO. DecoPanel also met the building sustainability requirements to reach its Premium Grade, 5 Star NABERS and 5 Star Green Ratings.

1 Denison Street is due for completion this year.
