Designed by fjmt – Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp, Sugar Docks is located in Jacksons Landing, Sydney, Australia. The tower consists of a series of glass residential apartments enclosed and anchored by two precast shells combining the visual language of the new development with that of the old Pyrmont. Within the glass form, apartments are turned away from their primary boundary towards the view and optimal orientation.
A podium element grounds the tower’s masonry walls and reinforces the sandstone cliff-like Bowman Street alignment. Apartments along Bowman Street have been articulated to read as a series of houses inserted into the cliff face. They have an intimate character with their connection to the park and are restricted in height allowing clearer views through site views from Distillery Hill and from the communal open space.
