Sky at One Central Park has been created from a unique synthesis of some of the design world’s most exciting minds. Pritzker-winning architect, Jean Nouvel; French botanist and environmental artist, Patrick Blanc; lighting artist, Yann Kersale; and collaborating interior architect, Koichi Takada, have come together to create a suite of penthouse apartments like no other.


“Nature teaches us that there is more to architecture than the creation of beautiful forms. It must involve all our senses, the feeling of a soft breeze, the acoustics in a cave or the ambience of natural light through a tree canopy – these are elements we cannot draw, but try to involve in the experience of architecture, particularly over time”, says Koichi Takada.


Koichi Takada Architects have crafted Sky’s interiors, layering colour and texture onto Jean Nouvel’s inspired architecture. With past projects spanning Australia, Japan, Europe and the Middle East, Koichi Takada brings a Japanese sensibility to Sky’s design. His innate understanding of texture, light and human scale gives the elegantly proportioned penthouse and sub-penthouse apartments an ethereal quality, complimenting the dynamism of the exterior architecture.


Interiors are sculpted through the use of abundant natural light, expansive views and free-flowing space. Natural and sustainable materials such as stone, marble and timber support an organic ambience that flows from room to room.


Natural light streams in through the use of greenery into each penthouse. While both natural and artificial light are mastered to allow residents to personalise the mood of their space.


Three colour schemes capture the shifting light. Dawn reflects the soft light of early morning. Daylight embraces the bright palette of saturated natural light. Twilight is moodier, evoking warm, rich and romantic interiors. Timber veneer or high gloss polyurethane finishes customise each home and define the colour schemes.


Superbly crafted, the penthouses offer an intimate retreat from urban light, yet are connected to Chippendale Green at the heart of Central Park via the vertical gardens stretching up from the park over the skin of the building and into the apartments.
