A 200-unit apartment building with an undulating façade will be built at Wolli Creek near Sydney Airport.
Designed by Tony Owen Partners, ‘The Curtain’ consists of two 15-storey towers that front onto a large park next to Botany Bay.
The structure is inspired by the waterfront views, with a wave-like façade mimicking the estuarine forms of the nearby bay.
The undulating effect will be achieved by alternating coloured glass panels on the wide apartment balconies.
Nearly all the apartments are 'thru-units', running north to south with open rear-access corridors on the south entered from external lift towers.
Each unit is naturally ventilated, helping to minimise energy costs, and sustainable green walls have been incorporated into the external design.
The ground floor of the building features a café, commercial facilities and several large lobbies enclosed in a glass louvres structure.
Construction on The Curtain is expected to commence in the coming weeks.
