Futuristic Apartment Building in Australia Cascading Down Bellevue Hill
Benelong Crescent Apartments is a project recently completed by Australian studio Luigi Rosselli Architects and located in Bellevue Hill, an eastern suburb of Sydney in the state of New South Wales, Australia. The building’s shape is said to be inspired by the famous Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower in Potsdam. One could also resemble it to a yacht in motion. According to the architects’ description, the apartments “cascade down the hill to follow the contours and the curved terraced balconies are shaped by the irregular boundaries of the site, rounded off by the prevailing winds. The Living areas have ample fenestrations opening on the large terraces, extending the interior spaces on the projecting panoramic outdoor space. The high end of the building is facing a quiet street with large trees and the walls have been moulded to wrap around the trees. The individual treatment of the different apartments has provided a ‘this is not a flat’ look.” How do you find the architecture of this complex apartment building?
