The Highline Development consists of 3 buildings, set around an internal landscaped podium. The development’s site has rich history as part of St Vincent’s Boys Home.
‘All Our Boys’ is a site-specific piece of public art that captures the history and lives of the boys that were the life and essence of the site. The artwork forms a gate and fence that goes above practical purpose and provides security without ceasing visual permeability.
The unique form, mimicking sheets of paper, is a reference to the Home’s history of traditional printing and bookbinding, done by the boys. The repetition of these mirror finish, aluminium sheets reflects the importance of unity in the process.
