INTRO: Recessed arches, free-standing stone plinths and hanging rooftop plants are designed to recall the ancient ruins of Babylon inside a restaurant and bar in Sydney. The restaurant, which takes its name from the city of Babylon, is located on the rooftop floor of Westfield shopping centre. Hogg & Lamb designed it with numerous arches and niches from travertine and natural stone to recall the ancient city.

Overall Babylon has been arranged as a miniature city, with different zones designed as urban districts containing enclosed groups of tables that are the buildings. "We researched Mesopotamian cities and artwork which helped influence the planning, the buildings, streets and arcades were helpful to create a locale, we were carful not to make a 'museum', but rather a place where people can have fun, relax even misbehave," said Hogg & Lamb co-founder Greg Lamb.
