An Inside Peek at the Interior Design of Crown Towers Sydney at One Barangaroo

Sydney’s newest icon, Crown Residences at One Barangaroo boats bespoke interiors designed by Manhattan-based Meyer Daivs.

As key partners, Space Furniture, and Spence & Lyda collaborated to arrange several showcase residences, each in different positions inside the tower.

The architectural curving shape of WilkinsonEyre designed tower gives each residence its distinct appearance and design, with Fiona Spence of Spence & Lyda centring her showcase on the south-facing Sydney city views.

“The use of woods and tactile surfaces was of tantamount importance to this story and played back nicely to the design of the building itself,” she told Knight Frank.

“I decided to lighten the interior with textiles that gently reflected light, and surfaces like jumbo corduroy and silk woven in the carpet all served to soften and add organic warmth to the interiors.”

Each element in the showcase residences was chosen with care to complement its surroundings and heighten the impression of luxury. Spence chose the Missoni Home Intill Sofa as a standout piece because of its rich textures that contrast with the metropolitan perspective.

“The generosity of the curves combined with the luxurious nature of the upholstery makes it one of the corner stones of the design,” she said.

“We have also the new K3 by Kenzo Tokada textile collection so we were able to showcase a collection never seen before in Australia.

“There is also a pair of Low chairs by British designer Matthew Hilton for Dela Espada are personal favourites, the sculptural element of the chair when seen from the back is very important as that is the first you see of the chair so it needed to be interesting.”

David Hartikainen of Space Furniture said the Apollo sofa designed by Antonia Citterio for Maxalto stood out.

“It is an interesting design because it has a slight curve to it, so it’s playing on its form and is the perfect sofa to encourage social dynamics in the living area,” he said.

Hartikainen worked with the residents to select personalised pieces to match their personalities and how they live in their home.

“I don’t want to give too much away about the residents’ homes, but I have been incredibly lucky to work with a group of people that are brave, excited and have placed their trust in me,” he said.

“One design I can mention, is one I created with our partners at Edra. It is a very unique design which references the site at Barangaroo and Sydney perfectly. It’s a true one off-custom piece and it was created for someone who I know will love and adore this in their home. I’m excited for them to finally see this.”
