World Tower

Location:
Sydney
Type:
Lobby
Year:
2003
Architect:
Robert Nation Architects
Project Manager:
Meriton
The 86 storey vertical form of the World Tower considers appropriate urban scalings through the use of a structural rationalist expressed superframe, for two thirds of the tower height, with a simplified tower form emerging from this frame for the top most third of the tower.

This approach allows for scaled references to its surrounding neighbours which togther with the complexity of balconies and winter garden plug on forms, provides a rich surface texture and varying materiality that further supports the pursuit of an appropriate urban fit, placing it apart from the usual extruded vertical forms of the Sydney skyline.

The overall finishes of the tower are selected for their simple, strong and modernist expessions and detailing that extend to the street frontages that all contribute to a unique contribution to the broader public context.
