‘International House’ forms a new public place for Sydney, and a pivotal connection between the newly formed precinct of Barangaroo and the historic heart of Sydney CBD.

The building manifestly demonstrates leadership in environmentally sustainable design and fosters good health and wellbeing for the office users of the building through the authentic and integral use of a combination of structural mass softwood timber and recycled Australian hardwood construction throughout.

According to the architects, International House Sydney, a seven-storey commercial building designed for Lendlease, is located at Barangaroo South in Sydney. The timber structure building will be the first modern commercial engineered timber building of its size and type in Australia.

The building makes extensive use of structural engineered timber and recycled hardwood timber. We have turned the structural limitations imposed by the use of timber to advantage and celebrated them, forming a unique colonnade form evocative of a forest of trees which gives the building its distinctive character.

The result is a poetic and dynamic celebration of the building’s structural resolution, forming the street edge and undercover pedestrian network.
