Sydney's most impressive address: One Central Park
Going up down under
A creation designed by acclaimed french architect Jean Nouvel, the impressive One Central Park address is composed of two towers, of 16 and 33 levels respectively, that rise above a four storey retail area. It resembles concepts from similar Nouvel treatment in Barcelona.
The mixed-use project, has been developed in collaboration with local company PTW Architects, and provides 563 apartment units, offering "high-end living at the heart of the urban centre".
It will also be wrapped in vegetation, with plants extending from the surrounding parkland upwards, and the taller tower features a 'reflector installation' heliostat that redirects sunlight to otherwise shaded areas. At night, the heliostat becomes a kind of urban chandelier.
