Setting a new precedent for luxury living globally, One Sydney Harbour will be a stunning addition to a striking city skyline. Known as the home to Australia’s most expensive residence, having been sold at over $140 million, the penthouse interior design has been carefully designed by State of Craft. This bespoke penthouse offering sets the tone for the design aesthetic and intrigue surrounding the new, Residences Two Skyhomes.

Located on the top two floors of Residences Two and spanning a full floor each, the Skyhomes range from 540–670 square metres with 3-metre high ceilings throughout. Accessed via a private lift lobby, each Skyhome will have a rooftop terrace with an entertaining space and swimming pool, these ‘Sky Terraces’ will range from 80-110 square metres. The Skyhome penthouses will boast panoramic views of Sydney, from the Harbour to the Blue Mountains as well as dual icon views, including the Harbour Bridge and Opera house.

“We wanted to create two unique, world-class homes in the sky that capture the essence of living high above Sydney Harbour. The experience of being in the Skyhomes was inspired by life on board private yachts with their seamless transition from inside to outside spaces, and the feeling of freedom and elegant comfort,” said Daniel Goldberg, founder and creative director, State of Craft.

State of Craft has worked on some of the world’s most iconic super-prime residences and lavish private homes including, The Shard Residences in London, the UK’s largest new country house, and now the One Sydney Harbour landmark. Working in tandem to embrace Renzo Piano’s vision, One Sydney Harbour’s interiors thoughtfully respond to the natural surrounds of Sydney, paying homage to the tower’s iconic presence and scale. Under State of Craft’s expertise, each Skyhome will be personally curated to meet the vision of its owners.

“Luxury is often confused with opulence, our approach to luxury is very much about craftsmanship, telling the story of curation, a sense of authenticity. We wanted the interiors to be timeless, sophisticated, and smart. Craftsmanship and attention to detail are really what sets these apartments apart,” added Goldberg.

Goldberg is known for designing spaces that respond to the local context and culture of a site, sourcing local materials, referencing traditions and vernacular elements to root every project in its place. From the unique hue of hand-cut stone, to the patina of a timbre that perfectly diffuses warmth through the space, each material has been chosen with precision and care, to create an environment of elegance and sophistication.

The Residential towers have an ethereal quality, reflecting and refracting Sydney’s ever changing light. The finishes are carefully chosen for their distinct pattern and form, producing an elevated design experience in every apartment.

Applying a delicate and refined approach to design, Renzo Piano and State of Craft have perfectly captured the essence of luxury living, and in turn a new landmark for the Sydney skyline.

“All places have a story to tell, you just have to listen to that story and I think Sydney has a great story to tell. We immediately started to think about these buildings being like crystals, playing one to the other. In this case, I think it’s very much about this, about making something that tells the essence of this city that is about sense of lightness, a sense of light, the sense of transparency,” said Renzo Piano, chairman and founding partner, Renzo Piano Building Workshop.

Offering curated apartments, world-class amenities and spectacular views, One Sydney Harbour is Sydney’s new premier address. Home to the landmark development, Barangaroo boasts world-class waterfront dining alongside a curated selection of boutique stores. Residents will enjoy the proximity to Sydney’s finest cultural offerings, a further testament to both Lendlease’s commitment to the suburb that they developed, and the precinct’s growing community.
