crown international holdings group showcase its ambitious mixed-use, multi-residential complex designed by koichi takada architects, in sydney, australia. located at the gateway of the ‘green square’ in the city, the proposed scheme of ‘infinity by crown’ aims to engage the public through architecture and to become a seamless interchange of recreational and residential activities. constant pedestrian movement around the perimeter of the building, as well as activity and traffic flow, sculpt a fluid architectural form. the building thus becomes an entertaining landmark moreso than a static architectural skyscraper. thus, the structure becomes an interactive residential typology and is a symbol of a contemporary architectural influences with visions of future living.

the design features are represented in the blend of two loops; one designed to activate the public plaza and streetscape, the other providing amenity and open space for residents. the residential loop, oriented due north, allows for daylight and natural environment into the public loop and central courtyard throughout the year, making it an inviting and attractive space for all to gather. the continuing loop, as it tilts toward the plaza, defines and enhances the connection to the public domain and protection of the solar access to the adjacent green square plaza. the garden terraces provide a transition into the surrounding urban fabric and relate to the larger master plan of the area.
