Koichi Takada Architects has designed a podium fronted with brick archways as the base of the glass and steel Arc tower in Sydney, Australia.
The mixed-use scheme for developer Crown Group is in a historic area of Sydney’s central business district.
Local firm Koichi Takada Architects combined old and new styles with a robust, arched brick podium surrounding a 26-storey glass and steel tower.
The Arc tower development contains 135 apartments and 86 boutique hotel rooms, with eight shops at street level.
The building is split in two by the publicly accessible Skittle Lane, a pathway from the 1980s that has been incorporated into the project.
