Alexander, Barangaroo – Wharfside Luxury Delivers Record Sales

Smart Design Studio was thrilled to be asked to design the interiors of the Alexander, Barangaroo residential apartments which set record sales at the end of August. All apartments in Alexander, along with those in Anadara (total 159 apartments) sold within 3 hours of their release. The brief was to create an exceptional residential complex that maximised the site’s connection to Sydney harbour. Inspired by the streamlined curves and beautiful finishing of classic timber yachts, we fashioned understated and sophisticated interiors to embody the concept of “Wharfside Luxury”. To enhance the sense of urban elegance, sandblasted joinery suggests the finely detailed finishing of mid-century Danish design in a raw, authentic manner. Full-height doors, moulded ceilings, rounded corners and coved lighting add to the overall sense of chic. Like all true luxury products, these interiors are designed to improve with age. Read more
