The Sydney Fish Market will establish a world-class “foodie” destination. The project seeks to set in place an exemplary example of integrating the public realm and contemporary market space that will become a landmark in Sydney’s unique harbour-based urban landscape.
The Sydney Fish Market will be relocated from its existing location in Pyrmont to an adjacent wharf in Blackwattle Bay in Sydney Harbour within The Bays Precinct. Centered around the new market, this stunning harbour front location will rival the world’s best markets and will include a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, and food stalls showcasing Australian produce to the world. 
The foreshore promenade is integrated and expanded via paths that encompass and circulate the destination, and those that force more intimate interaction through permeability. 
Flows from Bridge Road will be separated such that what is different functional uses may continue uninterrupted by each other. Strategies that enable ease of operation and function are separating pedestrian and vehicular flows, through various configurations of the vehicles, securing connection for the markets to the wider community and necessary transport link for distribution of market products off site. 
By integrating nature into the building, an active link is created between the peaceful green park and the vibrant, social spaces of the markets, drawing the surroundings and its visitors into and through the market towards the water. 
The prominence of the proposed site at the end of Blackwattle Bay seeks a unique response that requires the functional nature of the market to sit within and become integral to the extension of the harbour network and Sydney’s public waterfront domain. 
While its key operation is industrial by nature, the ambition is to maintain focus on human scale and fine grain urban form within the city fabric.
