Contemporary display suite for Sydney’s Greenland Tower
International architectural practices Lava and PTW have teamed up to design a suite for the Greenland Tower. Completed in 2013, the mixed-use property is located Sydney, Australia and is the tallest residential tower in the city.
The two firms joined forced to combine nature and technology in an organically-shaped display suite marketing the Sydney Greenland Centre on Sydney’s old Water Board site.
The lobby of the 1960s Water Board building has been transformed with freeform furniture and curvy walls and ceilings to take the
visitor through a journey of the new building.
The display suite for the mixed‐use building by the Greenland Group merges natural materials with high tech fabrication technologies.
Tony Rossi, executive director of PTW, said: “PTW are delighted to have been able to assist the Greenland Group, and to work closely
with Lava, on the first outreach by Greenland in the Australian residential marketplace.”
The fluid space features white terrazzo floors, illuminated timber desks, and walls lined with white leather and timber battens.
Continuous lighting ribbons create a luminous and airy environment.
The latest technologies include GRP – a lightweight, strong material that can be formed into fluid shapes. Parametric modelling and
rapid prototyping means the design went straight from a 3D computer model to the fabrication workshop where the reception and display desks were CNC cut and coated.
Chris Bosse, director of Lava, said: “People in the 21st century are looking for spaces that link them to nature, and the forms found in
nature – waves, canyons, clouds – create beautiful, efficient and connective spaces.”
The Greenland Centre will house apartments, retail and commercial. It incorporates two Water Board buildings: the adaptive reuse of
the eight-storey heritage-listed 1930s Pitt Street building and a new tower on top of the 1965 Bathurst Street building.
The Greenland suite is located at 115 Bathurst Street, Sydney, Australia. For further information, visit greenlandcentre.com.au
