Warringah Mall


Warringah Mall, Sydney, Australia 1999
Sun Plaza 14 metre diameter
In situ terrazzo by David Humphries  
Commissioned by AMP Properties
Architects: Woods Bagot
Builder: Bovias Lend Lease

The overall design concept was in place for Warringah Mall. The corporate logo was the basis of the imagery for the vast outdoor food court amphitheatre area of Sydney's largest shopping centre on the northern beaches.

David Humphries was commissioned to artistically interpret the design into a colourful and expressive terrazzo mosaic floor in front of the stage. 

An outdoor work, which at close range contains many subtle variations of colour and texture, it features many intricate decorative elements. When viewed from above it clearly reads as a sprawling colourful sun, symbolizing the relaxed beach side atmosphere of the locality.
