Oasis by Crown presents as a high quality, contributory piece of contemporary architecture, prominently located along the ridge of Ashfield.
The metaphor of the tree is used to express the verticality of the facade screening and dramatic floating roof and also reference the unexpected natural, serene materials within the building. It is not only a reinvention of the building externally, but a complete transformation of the building internally. As one transitions from the street into the main foyer of the building, an unexpected experience of great surprise has been created through the revealing of an urban sanctuary; timber cladding, a reflection pool, planting all beneath a dynamic atrium space extending up to the roof. Shafts of daylight fill this foyer and primary vertical circulation space. An urban oasis is created.
A communal lounge, music room and small theatre extend the elegant and naturally finished qualities of the calm and cool entry sequence.
