Protecting a national architectural and social icon



The Save Our Sirius foundation is a community organisation fighting for heritage listing of the Sirius building in Sydney, Australia. The iconic building is a prominent and important example of brutalist architecture and social housing in Australia, yet sits on some of the primest real estate in Sydney, which has sadly been a target for property developers and the NSW Government.

We designed a series of posters and communication materials for Save Our Sirius to raise money and awareness to call for urgent heritage listing. Each design is a response to a unique feature of Sirius, including topography and architectural and interior elements that emphasise the integrity of the building and the need for social housing within inner capital cities, regardless of socio-economic status or income.
