The development’s most iconic design element is its 22-metre-high waterfall, which happens to be the tallest man-made waterfall in the country. It was designed by Waterforms International’s Dirk Slotboom, who is best known for his installations at Hobart’s MONA gallery, his work on The Great Gatsby film set, and his designs for the Canberra Airport and the Australian embassy in Bangkok.
The waterfall is set within lush green walls by Sydney’s living infrastructure specialists Junglefy, with over 5000 tropical plants surrounding the waterfall and rooftop cinema. The cinema space also boasts expansive views across the city and a six-metre-high green wall that surrounds the screen.
The development, designed by award-winning architecture firm SJB, aims to set a new standard for biophilic design, which is meant to boost residents’ connectivity to the natural environment.
Apart from the rooftop cinema, residents can also enjoy resort-style facilities like an infinity rooftop pool and terrace, rope walk park, a cantilevered gym, a music room with a grand piano and a function room with a catering kitchen. There’s also a children’s play area which includes giant games and other play equipment. Every apartment has an oversized balcony too, and the garden apartments have direct access to that rope walk park.
