Interiors of One Central Park East & West Towers
The two interior architects had to provide a distinct identity for each tower at One Central Park, adding to this unique structure in Sydney.
Koichi Takada has styled the East Tower apartments using harmonious materials; patterns, motifs and basic ordering principles that continually repeat themselves throughout, while William Smart has stylised the West Tower apartments using innovative glass metal sheets with sophisticated curves. It was completed 2013.
One Central Park East Tower reaches from level 8 to 28 and Sky One Central Park East Tower is from level 29 to 33, altogether rising to an of height 116 meters.These apartments have a relaxed finish and natural ambience, which connect with the concept of Nouvel’s design creating a relationship between ideas of the two architects.
The finishes used for each apartment are organic, soft cool and with an earthy feel, muted tones of driftwood, hammered stone, linen and woven grasses, all enhanced with copper and bronze. Some apartments have a predominant natural feel like a unified organism, others suggesting the colours of earth core.
Takada has incorporated sliding timber slated screens that open up spaces or conceal kitchens from living areas. Slide the screens aside and the transformation is functional, creating privacy with minimal space taken. The internal lighting gives a glowing effect of a soft relaxing feeling that flows through the apartment.
The East Foyer and public spaces designed by Jean Nouvel are in harmony with nature with a striking display of bamboo bringing a sense of the organic world, there is a pervading infusing sense of the presence of nature throughout the East Tower, combining all areas from the foyer up to apartments.
The One Central Park West Tower apartment complex from levels 6 to 15, is desirable for inner-city habitation, with the aesthetics of “ high-speed luxury sports cars and motor yachts which are more prestigious when they smaller’’ as William Smart states while describing his concept. They definitely have the sense of high polish pod, with a high technology luxury car interior face.
They are elegant, luxurious, glamorous and unique-luxurious per the brief by Frasers Properties for compact space. Glamour is about being done with a certain ingenuity, theatricality, and personal mystique and in the same way, is minimalist.
High luxury bathrooms within a pod have timber and leather-like finishes.
The streamlined kitchens wrapping around the pod include built-in champagne bottle holders as in yates. These interiors reflect the dynamism of urban life with seamless bodywork, tailored to individuals, compact and efficient.
In public areas, the West Tower is robust, gallant and graphically stylish. Tyre-patterned carpets throughout the corridors, which seem to paved the way along the dark length of floor coverings.
In the double-height lobby, three grand LED monitors to act as canvas with images of the forest in embracing of the natural landscape of times before the city was built.
One Central Park West and East apartments, with their amenities (Terrace pool, Gymnasium and Concierges) coupled with the very strong architecture of Jean Nouvel, are a perfect combination not just for living, but living it up!
