Set to open in Barangaroo in December 2020, three months ahead of schedule, the Crown Towers Sydney will aim to deliver a level of luxury unparalleled in Australia.
With award-winning architect, Wilkinson Eyre at the helm, backed by an internationally renowned team of the world’s best designers, the Crown Towers Sydney will stand at 275 metres high, making the hotel the tallest in Sydney.
Overlaid with a façade comprising of more than 8,000 glass panels, all individually cut, the Crown Towers Sydney’s unique structure twists as it rises in a petal-like formation.
This hotel’s shape has created an innovative design opportunity, creating 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 distinctive configuration.
“Crown Towers Sydney will stand amongst the finest hotels in the 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.
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.
The interiors were designed by Meyer Davis, and showcase refined luxury with coastal hues. The design was 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.”
The Crown Spa Sydney will offer two specialty 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. On the third level, sits an expansive infinity pool and terrace that has been designed to connect with the panoramic harbour views. There are cabanas and day beds for guests to relax on while overlooking the beauty of Sydney’s harbour.
