Bates Smart wins SOPA Residential Competition
Bates Smart was announced as the winner of a competition for two new residential towers at Sydney Olympic Park, with associated streetscape podium.
The challenge was to integrate the new towers with an existing rectangular tower and create a harmonious composition. The elliptical towers maximise views and available solar access, with the horizontal bands adjusting to provide sunshading to the north. The vertical slots provide increased cross ventilation and integrate the geometry of two overlapping ellipses.
