Starbucks The Rocks

Who: Starbucks Coffee PTY LTD

What: We recently had the honour of designing and installing an artwork for the handsome new Starbucks store at The Rocks. The building, the old E,S & A Chartered Bank, was designed in 1885, in Venetian Gothic style by William Wardell, and is considered to be a ‘gem’ of non-ecclesiastical Gothic revival (goth revival! 👻) architecture in Australia. The design brief called for the artwork to contain the themes such as bank notes, sea faring, historic references to The Rocks, coffee and of course the double tailed Siren.. The artwork was to have a three dimensional sculptural element to it as well.. oh, and 2 days to design it all before we have to get in there and paint it! I have shown some design developments, initial sketches and ideas, then final digital art, drawn on the iPad using Procreate. Then I traced some shapes and send them to Melbourne to be CNC cut out of MDF, shipped to the The Rocks where we painted them, then they were glued together and hung in the entry hall! 😅 it was a whirl-wind, but such an honour to create something for such a space!
