Ballast Point Entry Feature

Ballast Point Park

Located on the former Caltex lubricant production facility site, the 2.5ha Ballast Point Park occupies the Birchgrove Peninsula in Sydney’s inner western harbour suburb of Balmain. The site, owned by Caltex from the 1920’s until 2002, has a rich history, from the privately owned residence ’Menevia’ of the 1860’s, to a ship ballast quarry.

The design concept aims to reflect our cultural shift in seeing sites of this nature as an asset to be respected not a resource to be drawn from.

With a number of access points and stairs, structural elements and entry features, this was a landmark project for our team.
