Benelong Crescent Apartments in Bellevue Hill

The inspiration of this residential building found in Bellevue Hill, part of the  eastern suburbs of Sydney, Australia comes actually from Germany, where the Einstein Tower was build back in the 1920’s. It was designed to house a solar telescope and is still operational today.

Those forms I belive inspired Luigi Rosselli Architects to create tarraces in cascade.No straight line can be found in his creation.Only fine curved shapes and lines describe an open plain tarrace with a great view over surrounding area.Although, when looking from the street the cascade of big sunny balconies gives the impression that every single tarrace is the same, in fact every opening from the apartment has its own individual shape.

They are decorated with ornamental plants on the sides, on the floor a layer of white gravel and on top of it a wooden deck with the edges trimmed properly to match the shape of each railing also made from wood chemically treated to cope with the outside wheaher conditions.

Also a great feature for this type of construction is the balcony from above which covers a big part of the balcony beneath proctecting it from the powerfull sunshine during the afternoon.Plenty of light can pass through the big panoramic windows revealing so the great dark coloured hardwood representing furniture and interior doors.The white colour from the walls and  kitchen appliences gives the place an elegant modern look.{found on homedsgn}
