Sydney’s One Central Park by French architect Jean Nouvel has called on superior finishes and winning fittings.
May 27th, 2013
While the East and West towers may appeal to different personalities, there is one common element – streamlined kitchens fitted with compact appliances.
Designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, One Central Park is the first residential stage of the $2 billion Central Park urban development in Chippendale, Sydney.
Collaborating on what is set to become the city’s newest urban landmark, interior architects William Smart of Smart Design Studio and Koichi Takada worked to deliver unique interiors to the West and East towers respectively.
Winning Appliances provided the finishing touches to the interiors of each tower – and according to Brad Street, general manager commercial of Winning Group, the key focus was to find the ultimate appliance and bathroom solutions for the project as a whole.
“No project is the same and we always have to factor in elements such as design, scale, timelines and budget. That is why it is so important work closely with project managers, developers, architects and designers to gain a full understanding of the specific needs,” he explains.
The raw organics of One Central Park East are matched by the high speed luxury of the West. The materials and finishes of the East apartments create the effect of a wooden treehouse, with sliding timber screens to separate the kitchen and living areas complemented by soft glowing interior lighting. Muted tones of driftwood, hammered stone, linen and woven grasses brings the look together.
Meanwhile spaces in One Central Park West revolve around a central lacquered pod, buffed to a high sheen. Reminiscent of the curves and glossy finishes of the world’s best sports cars, the urban feel of the apartments is carried right through to the finest details.
Yet harmony is created in the design of the kitchen – both towers feature apartments with streamlined cooking areas which include compact yet efficient appliances and cabinetry. An effective use of space allows apartment dwellers to entertain guests effortlessly, despite the smaller footprint.’
“We are very excited by the opportunity to work with Frasers Properties and proud to support and supply appliances for One Central Park,” says Brad.
