Twin Residential High Rise

← Back to the Portfolio

Project Name: Twin Residential High Rise
Designed By: Dena Hamed
Building Type: Residential / commercial
Location: Sydney, NSW, Australia

The project brief was based on a real world potential residential high rise project to be located within the Sydney CBD – replacing the current, aging Goldfields House tower located on 1 Alfred St. Sydney.

The buildings are a 60 storey high rise tower and a 24 storey medium rise tower, both containing residential apartments with retail and offices on the lower levels and a rooftop swimming pool. Apartment types include studios, 1, 2, 3 bedroom apartments and 2 penthouse suites. The building is “twisted” to maximise the variety of views from the buildings. The curved floor plates also minimise wind tunnels by allowing air to glide past the buildings rather than cut across the buildings.

Programs Used: Autodesk Revit, 3DS Max for rendering with Mental Ray and Adobe Photoshop
