Kengo Kuma’s design submitted in partnership with Australian architecture firm Koichi Takada Architects, has been named the winner in a competition to design Crown Group’s new tower for Sydney’s Waterloo.
Forming part of a five-building development in Waterloo which also includes three buildings designed exclusively by Koichi Takada Architects and a building designed by Sydney-based architects Silvester Fuller, the 19-storey tower will feature a cantilevered infinity-edge rooftop pool, gym and community room with a plant-filled, green exterior designed to emulate a stacked forest.
The development at 48 O’Dea Avenue Waterloo will comprise 384 luxury apartments across five buildings, ranging 4 to 19 storeys and a mix of restaurants, cafes and shops. Crown Group Chairman and Group CEO Iwan Sunito said “This development will be a forward-thinking new addition to Sydney’s Green Square redevelopment precinct,” Mr Sunito added. The building will be the tallest of five buildings on a site at 48 O’Dea Avenue, which will collectively be known as W48. Source and images Courtesy of Crown Group.
