Benelong Crescent Apartments by Luigi Rosselli Architects

By • Nov 17, 2011 •  Selected Work 

Australian studio Luigi Rosselli Architects has just completed the Benelong Crescent Apartments project in Bellevue Hill, an eastern suburb of Sydney in the state of New South Wales, Australia.

This new residential building is inspired by the sinuous forms of Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower in Potsdam, completed in the 1920’s.

Benelong Crescent Apartments by Luigi Rosselli Architects:

“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.”

    Definitely modeled after the essence of a yacht. I think it’s fun and interesting, and allows for multiple extraordinary views.
