New cultural facility within the Cutaway is now on public exhibition

2 Mar 2023

When the Cutaway opened in 2015 as a large concrete shell, it was always envisaged to include a future fitout. The new cultural facility within the Cutaway will:

  • Maintain the current character of the space.
  • Provide acoustic enclosures and on-site amenities
  • Span over three levels and provide pre-function spaces (café??), temporary gallery space and an educational space.

The State Significant Development (SSD) application for the new Barangaroo Cutaway Cultural Facility is now on public exhibition until Wednesday 29 March 2023.

Barangaroo Reserve recreates a headland that existed before European arrival in Sydney – a place used by First Nations people for thousands of years. This re-imagining required a process of restoration, creation and construction.
