Video: Piano joins Rogers on Barangaroo skyscrapers job

  • Comment

Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) has won an international competition for three luxury residential towers in Sydney’s £3 billion Barangaroo regeneration district

The architect of London’s Shard tower defeated WOHA, Christian de Portzamparc, Denton Corker Marshall and FJMT to win the Lend Lease-backed waterfront project.

RPBW’s winning design will be constructed between Wilkinson Eyre’s 235m-tall Crown Sydney Hotel and three office skyscrapers designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour+ Partners (RSHP).

Commenting on the project, Piano said:  ‘A city development of three luxury residential high-rise towers in such a location is, in this climate, a rare opportunity.’

He continued: ‘Our vision is to design three buildings with a gentle presence in the cityscape and in dialogue with the harbour waters and Barangaroo waterfront.’

Andrew Wilson, Lend Lease’s Barangaroo South managing director added: ‘One Sydney Harbour will be an iconic Australian address and we are delighted to work with Renzo Piano to build architecture that will complement Sydney’s skyline and stand the test of time.’

A revised concept plan for the three towers’ plot has already been submitted to the New South Wales Department of Planning and Environment.

Wilkinson Eyre defeated Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, KPF and RPBW in a contest for the Crown Sydney Hotel ‘resort’ tower two years ago.

Construction of RSHP’s International Towers Sydney project nearby is expected to complete next year.
