Our design for this 90m residential tower includes 76 apartments, 3 commercial office floors and a ground floor retail space. The site, in the northern Sydney suburb of Chatswood, will form the northern point of the proposed Chatswood CBD expansion. Bordered by the railway line and Pacific Highway, it has excellent links to the local area and the Sydney CBD beyond.
We’ve designed the building form with four vertical ceramic blades that create a full-height cruciform shape. The blades curate apartment views and define the residential quadrants of the floorplate, while controlling daylight exposure, shading and ventilation. Their earthy, terracotta colour will visually ground the building within its local context, taking a cue from nearby brick residential buildings.
We’ve maximised the podium rooftops to provide amenities to residents, including a lap pool, outdoor dining spaces, a yoga terrace and landscaped terrace gardens. We’ve also included landscaping at the ground level and publicly accessible open space that’s shaded by large canopy trees. With its projected 5 Star Green Star rating, it will set the standard for future development in the Chatswood area.
