GAYNZ was a commission from TBWA Melbourne and ANZ, to highlight the 10th anniversary of the bank's sponsorship of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. To mark the occasion ANZ wanted to convert an operating city bank branch from the usual ANZ to GAYNZ.
The off-site construction took over three months and produced over five tonnes of bespoke columns, pink porcelain statues, black marble tiles, gold leaf palms, ornate ceilings, drag queen carpets and nineteen hand painted frescoes. The bank was then transformed over one weekend and ready to open on Monday morning.
