Crone and Kengo Kuma & Associates collaborated to design a sculptured form for the hotel tower that slowly pixelates, breaking down the scale of the building creating a more human-scale at the lower levels. Combining local sandstone, cascading green walls and large windows with harbour views, the vegetation along these pixelated terraces will soften the appearance of hard edges creating a connection to First Fleet Park opposite the building.
The design prioritises the public realm and everyday experience, creating a pedestrian gateway to Sydney’s business district, unlocking a new cultural and creative precinct to transform Circular Quay. The design promotes Sydney’s diversity, climate and lifestyle and is destined to become part of Sydney’s future heritage.
