World renowned Italian architect, Renzo Piano, in collaboration with Lendlease, has brought his vision to One Sydney Harbour. His delicate and refined approach has led him to create a timeless and elegant new landmark celebrating the shimmering light and sparkling water that defines Sydney's iconic landscape.
Lightness and Beauty
Renzo Piano's design of One Sydney Harbour's facade applies a number of unique treatments to emulate the facets of a crystal. With each tower portraying a different level of reflectivity at different times of the day, the towers respond to one another playfully bouncing and refracting the colours of Sydney's sky and harbour like crystals.
“The brightness of the sky will be captured, refracting the glittering Sydney light, right to the top where the penthouse apartments merge into the sky. The result is a trio of graceful buildings that capture and play with light, like harbour waters in the morning sun.”
– Renzo Piano
