Viking Apartments introduce an entirely new and exhilarating architectural medium into urban living. Each striking apartment has been designed with a wide frontage, ensuring all spaces look out across exciting new parklands and the city of Sydney. Inspiration derived from internationally renowned Israeli artist Yaacov Agam, founder of the post war kinetic art movement and creator of ground breaking sculpture, paintings and architecture.
Acute angles, cantilevered windows and deeply recessed loggias create a unique sense of space while structural panels of stark yellow and brilliant red surprise and excite. Floor to ceiling glass across wide frontages of each architecture provide spectacular views of the park and city from all living areas and bedrooms. Fully operable louvres enable residents to manually control heat, light and air both within their architecture and loggia, according to the season and time of day.
Extensive landscaping is a major feature of Viking Apartments with a substantial new parkland being created adjacent to the building and master-planned to run through the entire precinct as further development occurs.
Viking’s design combines functionality with aesthetics. Features such as adjustable aluminium louvers on windows and balconies provide solar protection and privacy for residents and also enable full height glass to be used, converting balcony spaces to loggias that are an extension of the living space – providing an additional room to most apartments.
Clean lines and efficient planning make the most of every apartment. Other design elements include the large variety of layouts, including single and double level floorplans, air-conditioning and ample storage.Location: Sydney, Australia
