Biophillic form

Responding to the curvilinear shoreline of Sydney Harbour, the sculpturally carved and tapered form echoes the striated texture of the foreshore sandstone.

168 Walker residents will never need to leave home again. Ambitious and cosmopolitan, this new luxury mixed-used precinct will offer the residents the benefits of a suburban dwelling with the amenity and convenience of forward-thinking high-rise city living. Catering to different tenant interests, a variety of active, passive and outdoor amenity spaces will encourage residents to exercise, relax or socialise.

The project seeks to create a community within itself while also reconnecting with the surrounding neighborhood. At street level, a free flowing ground plane opens up the site, blurring the boundary between the neighbouring hotel and enticing the community to enjoy new retail, restaurants and landscape areas.

Project details

Living opportunities are enhanced through highly adaptable units with flexible planning and living options made possible through extensive joinery and wintergardens. Stepping up to 28 storey’s, apartments are positioned to maximise the iconic Sydney Harbour views.

Echoing its water-side context, the building’s form is derived from the soft lines of plants and nature characterised by the surrounding deep tree-lined landscape and the curvilinear shoreline of Sydney. Curved and tapering, the buildings’ sculptural and striated form is reminiscent of foreshore sandstone.
