Grande is the ultimate artistic expression of prestige living on the grandest of scales.
T1 is the first of TWT Property Group’s buildings in the St Leonards precinct. It celebrates the spirit of St Leonards as a bustling and progressive community, with its artful and fluid design sitting naturally in the urban context.
Experimenting with a new dynamic sculptural form, its ribbon-like profile encapsulates the visual quality of movement, light and shadow.
The building certainly made an impact. T1 was a finalist in the 2014 Sydney Design Awards, an annual snapshot of the sophisticated design culture in the vibrant Sydney marketplace.
From conception, TWT Property Group knew they wanted to do things better. a+ design group were engaged to deliver a more imaginative and fresh approach to the building and set it apart from generic blocks elsewhere on the street.
Workshopping ideas, the architectural team played with long ribbons in the office and watched the way the air danced across them, creating dynamic motion. T1’s exterior design drew from this kinetic real-life ribbon play, taking the shape of fine layers of fabric that appear to ‘dress up’ the building.
Housing the TWT charity arm which hosts artist events and the TWT Block Party within the surrounding area.
TWT Creative Precinct strives to support creativity in St. Leonards and reinvigorate the cultural identity of the lower north shore by supporting new and existing, local, creative businesses.
Grande encompasses a boutique collection of 11 beautifully crafted terrace homes of varying multi-level layouts. An architectural language that’s both subtle and elegantly proportioned has resulted in dramatic, voluminous spaces.
These are enhanced by bespoke interiors from DBI that sensitively reference the area’s unique industrial heritage. Upper level living spaces and balconies allow for an intimate connection to the harbour and Pyrmont Bay landscape from the vantage point of a private realm.
