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.

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.
