Koichi Takada Architects - Sydney


Aqualuna

“The surrounding buildings are very solid, horizontal and structured but Aqualuna will connect more with the natural flow of the harbour and nearby bays”

Nestled in Milsons Point, Aqualuna is a new boutique eight-storey, 63-apartment building designed by Koichi Takada Architects and launched in April 2017.

Offering a harbourside location that provides a serene and tranquil escape from city living, Aqualuna becomes an architectural ‘beacon’ in Milsons Point, setting a new benchmark for luxury residences in this iconic village suburb. Aqualuna was designed to depart from its more solid neighbours, with curves on it external building façade, reflective of natural flow of its harbourside location.

Each residence was designed by Koichi Takada. Aqualuna provides a variety of mixed sized apartments these include: one-bedroom, two-bedrooms, three-bedrooms and five penthouse apartments all with wave-like features and interior schemes influenced by the natural flow of Sydney Harbour.

The interior of the building contains natural, curved walls and organic forms. Curved walls mimic the ripples of the harbour, making these homes an organic breath of fresh air. Open-plan living and dining areas flow onto generous balconies, which have been cleverly designed to provide privacy for residents, while not obstructing their views.

The result is 63 luxury apartments, each with their own unique touch – coexisting as an urban sanctuary near the water. The Harbour Bridge can be seen from corner views with glimpses of water reflecting colour across the living room. Pure and natural tones – white, pale blue and grey – are sensitive to light and designed to highlight the ever-changing sky.

 

“Inside, there is our signature look, with natural, curved walls and organic forms that are specific to the architectural design.”
