Park Sydney is a complex interdisciplinary project where much of the publicly accessible spaces are located on podium or roof top which requires a technical understanding of the complex requirements, and the ability to seamlessly resolve and integrate these elements into a successful design outcome.

The design draws upon the fine grain urban fabric established within the surrounding suburbs of Erskineville and Ashmore and celebrates their unique and diverse characteristics as reflected within the built form and various landscape areas found within the mixed-use residential development.
