From the spread of a bird’s wings to the curves of time-worn stone, the natural world has been inspiring humans for millennia. People have an innate connection to nature, and biophilic design aims to support this connection in the built environments where we live and work. Biophilic design doesn’t just lead to stunning architecture, either; connections with the natural world can actively improve physical, mental and emotional health.
Here at Crown Group each one of our luxury developments features biophilic design at its very core, each in its own unique and breathtaking way.
Organic curves & ice caves
You need only look at the rooftop garden or the indoor swimming pool at Arc by Crown Group to see the natural influences for these apartments for sale in Sydney’s CBD. Apartment interiors blend the outdoors and indoors for beautiful al fresco living, while the indoor pool and spa are directly inspired by ice caves complete with other-worldly illumination.

Urban forests & green growth
Mastery by Crown Group comprises five buildings in Waterloo in a stunning collaboration between renowned architects Kengo Kuma, Koichi Takada and Silvester Fuller. Natural connection and wellbeing are at the very heart of this masterful vision, with Kuma envisioning Building C as a vertical stacked forest of greenery to bring vitality to Sydney’s skyline. State-of-the-art amenities evoke forest surroundings with their timber panelling, while apartment interiors are imbued with organic qualities and green glimpses. Every detail of this Waterloo development is channelled to reflect the natural simplicity of Japanese Zen principles, with interplays of light (hikari) and shadow (kage) for an energising result.
“It is always in dialogue with humans. But good architecture does not attempt to fix nature—instead, it moves with nature, always continuing the dialogue.” – Kengo Kuma
