When Crown Towers Sydney opens in Barangaroo in December 2020, three months ahead of schedule, it will deliver a level of luxury unparalleled in Australia
Crown has released a series of never-before-seen renders of Crown Towers Sydney, set to open at waterside precinct Barangaroo in December, three months ahead of schedule. Standing at 275 metres high, the hotel will be the tallest in Sydney and promises an ultra-luxurious hospitality experience unrivalled in Australia, with nearly every element of the fit-out custom-designed.
Featuring 349 guest rooms including 20 villas and two premium villas, the top villa will span an extraordinary 820 metres across two levels and will be the highest habitable space in any hotel in Sydney.
An internationally renowned team of the world’s best designers has come together to create an architectural masterpiece both inside and out, with award-winning architect, WilkinsonEyre, behind the spectacular building. Overlaid with a façade comprising of over 8,000 glass panels, all individually cut and unique in their size, Crown Sydney’s unique structure sees it twist as it rises in a petal-like formation, creating unique floors at each level and framing the views of Sydney’s most iconic harbourside landmarks. The concentric nature of the building means that every one of the rooms has a unique configuration.
The interiors, designed by Meyer Davis, showcase refined luxury with coastal hues inspired by the hotel’s waterfront location, with 50 custom-made crystal light pieces along with a chandelier that is close to eight metres long on display. The guest bathrooms will feature Ella Blue Marble walls, Nero Marquina floors and custom-made baths, Jacuzzis in the villas and bespoke fittings by Apaiser and Hansgrohe, while Balinese inspired landscaping is seen throughout the hotel. Blainey North, an Australian architecture and interior design firm that specialises in luxury environments, created a Sydney Harbour inspired design for the Crown Spa. Crown’s touch-screen technology, from 24 hour in-room dining and concierge services to media streaming, will make the guest rooms a personalised experience.
“Our main focus when designing the hotel rooms for Crown Sydney was to emphasise the curvaceous, sensual shape of the building and to enhance the guest’s experience,” said Will Meyer, Co-Founder at Meyer Davis. “When we visited Sydney for the first time we were taken aback by Sydney’s ethereal light and we wanted to select materials that reflected this. Our colour palette was silver, white, and grey highlighted by brass, polished black and nickel.”
On level three sits an expansive infinity pool and terrace that has been designed to connect with the panoramic harbour views with cabanas and day beds for guests overlooking Sydney harbour. The Crown Spa Sydney will offer two speciality treatments beds, ‘Quartz Plassmo’ and ‘Spa Wave’, designed to elevate Crown’s wellness offering, as well as a private fitness studio adorned with TechnoGym’s exclusive ‘Artis’ equipment and an open-air tennis court.
“Crown Towers Sydney will stand amongst the finest hotels in world. We have worked with leading international design teams to create something truly unique for Sydney. International in feel, but celebrating the beauty of Sydney and its surrounds in its execution,” said Crown Sydney Chief Operating Officer, Peter Crinis.
Crown Towers Sydney is predicted to contributing almost half a billion to the economy when it opens. Bookings will go live before July, with further details to be announced throughout the course of 2020.
