LIVE IN AUSTRALIA’S FIRST HOME DESIGNED BY JAPAN’S KENGO KUMA
19 February 2019 – Leading Australian property developer Crown Group has unveiled its new luxury resort-style penthouses at its newest residential development, Mastery by Crown Group. Once completed in 2021, the highly anticipated apartments will offer an unrivalled level of sophistication in the heart of Waterloo, Sydney’s rapidly developing new lifestyle community.
New penthouses form part of the Penthouse Collection soon to be unveiled across three of Crown Group’s developments, Arc, Waterfall and Mastery by Crown Group. There are three architecturally designed penthouses at Mastery by Crown Group within the innovative 20-story residential tower designed by world-renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. The tower has a lush, timber-clad design and a green exterior with a ‘stacked forest’ appearance.
Each penthouse has an ample 150 to 171 sqm plus spacious outdoor areas and spectacular panoramic views of Australia’s most beautiful city as well as surrounding suburbs of Zetland and Green Square. Takada’s design is inspired by the interplay of light (hikari) and shadow (kage).
Koichi Takada Architects has created modern and sophisticated Japanese-inspired interiors with a generous use of natural materials, timber tones and soft warm hues.
The Mastery Penthouse Collection features kitchens and bathrooms with high-end finishes and appliances. Travertine is used in the kitchen island benchtops, splashbacks, and in the bathroom walls, floors and vanity benches. There are premium Smeg appliances throughout, including rangehoods, gas cooktops, ovens, steam ovens, microwave ovens and coffee machines. Also included are two warming drawers, two dish drawers, and a wine fridge. Floor to ceiling glazing, timber floorboards, Japanese standard Toto combined automated toilet/bidet and home automation complete the offering. Buyers will have the option to upgrade to a Japanese onsen style bathtub in their ensuite, soaking in a natural style with the use of unusual hinoki timber for bathtub.
Mastery by Crown Group Project Director Prisca Edwards said the Penthouse Collection offered residents an unrivalled level of resort-style luxury, with hassle-free convenience and maximum privacy.
“Savvy buyers know exactly what they are looking for in the current property market and they are ready to buy,” Mrs Edwards said. “We know the best apartments in this prime location will sell fast.”
“The Penthouse Collection at Mastery by Crown Group will provide buyers an option to live in Sydney’s most sought-after new architectural precinct.”
The $500 million project, being developed in partnership with Mitsubishi Estate Asia, will comprise 374 luxury apartments in five distinct buildings. Three of the buildings are designed by award-winning architect Koichi Takada Architects, while the fifth is designed by established Sydney architects Silvester Fuller.
Residents will have access to Crown Group’s signature resort-style facilities including an infinity-edge rooftop pool, gym, spa, mini-cinema and a community room. A ground-floor retail precinct will have a mix of restaurants, cafes and shops.
Residents will also have a novel new dining concept on their doorstep: Sydney’s first Japanese “eat street” with offerings in the style of Tokyo’s Shibuya and Shinjuku special wards, bustling Izakaya, as well as sushi trains, ramen restaurants and more traditional tea houses serving Cha-kaiseki.
“Residents will love our Mastery Penthouse Collection,” Mrs Edwards said. “Imagine living a penthouse lifestyle, dining on excellent Japanese food whenever you like, discovering the most delightful first Japanese precinct in Sydney as a destination, and having the best Sydney could offer, right on your doorstep.
“Only three penthouses are available for buyers – this is an exclusive opportunity to live in the very first Kengo Kuma designed residential building in Australia.”
The new Mastery by Crown Group Display Centre is open every day from 10am to 4pm at 30-36 O’Dea Avenue, Waterloo.
The Mastery Penthouse Collection apartments are for sale, from $3,750,000 to $4,880,000. Studio, one, two and three-bedroom premium apartments are also for sale, priced from $630,000 to $2,370,000.
