High-rise, luxury apartments reverse engineering natural light

The 218 apartment block comprises 1 -3 bedroom apartments and 3 levels of commercial space. The unique crystalline Façade has been driven by the technical client request of providing maximum sunlight. Collaborating with the architects, we developed an inclined Façade that would provide clear sitelines and reverse engineered the hours of required sunlight by developing a distinctive envelope canopy. Offering uninterrupted northern views of Sydney Harbour, Polaris is the definition of style and luxury living.
