Built in the 1970’s the iconic Robert Brown Building in Sydney’s Royal Botanical Gardens was previously the home of the National Herbarium of NSW.

The relocation of the Herbarium presented an opportunity to repurpose the building, transforming the design and aesthetic appeal to a warm and inviting environment for future generations to enjoy. This unique project required the early engagement of Renascent’s specialised team, leading the detailed planning and transformative design of the building to create a new home for the Research Centre for Ecosystem Resilience.

Showcasing a vast gallery with a central open area with glimpses through to scientists working in the upstairs laboratories, the design catered for multi-use flexible zones, driving commercial opportunities and allowing visitors, students and scholars to engage with leading edge science programs.

External works included an extensive façade replacement, in addition to a new lift, access, remediation and compliance upgrades.

The redevelopment of the Brown Building preserved its historical significance while transforming it into a modern, welcoming mixed-use space, revitalising an aging asset for the community to enjoy for years to come.
