Sidney, Australia

The built form has to do with light, air and the comprehension that the possible views from this site to residential apartments adds to the amenability. It is in the public interest to enable residential comfort by virtue of a view; a position; a certain calmness and repose. The site already makes that offering and thereafter it is in the understanding of the shapes of plans that the ability to capture the potential of the form exists.

Flowers reach out to seek the sunlight and provide an elegant form in light, of soft radial forms. Each plan begins with the core, the stem of the building that moves forward to be a living room. The diagonal view, as Louis Kahn told, creates the sense of depth and intimacy to the plan; the softness of a curve gives rise to gradual light against the important yielding living room wall, which separates the sleeping quarters in a leaf-like manner.
