Elevate your game day
Allianz Stadium’s 2022 redevelopment by COX Architecture elevates your game-day experience. Moreover, it reshaped the heart of Sydney’s Moore Park precinct. The 8.7Ha $730 million redevelopment delivered a vibrant leisure, sports, and community connection hub. As drinking fountain fanatics, we’d like to spotlight the hydration hero of this architectural phoenix. This robust, stainless steel hydration hero that’s as ingenious as the stadium itself. Let’s talk about the Bold drinking water fountain with bottle filler, and why COX Architecture chose to specify this fountain.
From Crowds to Community: The Fountain at the Heart of Connection
While sporting events take centre stage, Allianz Stadium now thrives as a “stadium in the park”. The space embraces the lush green expanse of Moore Park. The redeveloped Allianz Stadium rewards match-day and event patrons. Sports lovers are rewarded with a rich and engaging experience. In turn, this invites regular use by neighbouring residents. The stadium attracts a city-wide, year-round patronage of a remarkable public space. COX Architecture specified the Bold Drinking Fountain for this prestigious project. Interspaced throughout the grounds, the Bold drinking water fountain embodies the stadium’s welcoming spirit. Its accessible design, complete with a dog bowl and water bottle refill outlet, caters to both human and hound. This is key to fostering a sense of shared public enjoyment.
Accessible Hydration: A Challenge for Public Space Planners and Designers.
Traditional drinking fountains often fall short in several key areas. They’re unappealing, do not have a bottle filler and are difficult for people with disabilities to use. Likewise, they lack features that cater to diverse needs. Additionally, hygiene concerns and water wastage are common complaints. In collaboration with Allianz Stadium management, Cox Architecture sought to overcome these challenges. They wanted a solution that prioritises form, function, and inclusivity. With this in mind, they chose the Bold Drinking Fountain.
The Accessible Answer: The Bold Drinking Fountain
Civiq’s Bold drinking fountain, manufactured from durable 316 stainless steel, is a testament to innovative design. Its sleek, robust form seamlessly integrates into the stadium’s modern aesthetic. But the true brilliance lies in its functionality:

Accessibility is paramount at Allianz Stadium. The Bold’s DDA compliance ensures everyone can easily stay hydrated, regardless of ability. This aligns with the “fans-first” approach that permeates the entire design. It creates a welcoming space for all community members to gather and socialise.
