More than just a building, Connor at Central Park is the new gateway to one of Sydney’s most popular urban precincts – Central Park in Chippendale.
Home to 178 apartments and retail on the ground floor, this 13-storey building reads as a series of boxes or cubes suspended in the air – a delicate balance of form, composition and proportion.
Entering from Chippendale Green, visitors and residents are drawn though a compressed portal into a dramatic three-storey atrium lobby.
Extending across all three stories, a huge light box illuminates the centre of the building, changing colour through the day choreographed from an infinite spectrum of colours.
The kitchen and joinery design draws inspiration from three great cities of the world, Helsinki, Antwerp and Granada. Interlocking forms are created by contrasting finishes, from raw matte timbers to glossy polyurethane or contrasting gloss levels to create subtle textural variations.
Connor Apartments are an intricate balance of location and surroundings, opportunity and conformity.
Both modern and warm, contemporary and inviting, it is supremely comfortable nestled on the edge of old and new.
The silky sheen created by the reflectiveness of its brushed copper/ aluminium composite cladding sets the building firmly on the cutting edge of design.
The exterior also features independently angled vertical fins that create a shimmering lenticular effect, bringing an inviting warmth that enhances the new urban landscape.
