Wedge shaped buildings of Redfern 1; this iconic one sits above Redfern Station on the prow of Little Eveleigh St. Currently home to #The BigIssue, it’s currently needlessly under threat of demolition for a long overdue western concourse for Redfern Station, which new community alliance #reconnectredfern propose should instead be located further west for maximum public benefit #nswpol @cityofsydney #redfernstation #littleeveleighstreet #wedgebuildings #flatirontype #redfernstationconcourse #warehouse #wedgewarehouse #sydneyarchitecture

Flashing past our mixed use tower in Burwood - seen from the train. Super slender, only 12.8m wide, 20 storeys height, small footprint (3m side setback), white with fine proportions. Hybrid mix of larger & separate commercial spaces, serviced apartments with 45 x 1 & 2 storey apartments above Thanks to team @aaronj_murray @hay_nina @john.mouawad #tower #slendertower #mixedusetype #hybridtype #urbanarchitecture #smallfootprinttower #whitetower #construction #burwoodtower #burwood #burwoodstation #viewfromthetrain #sydneyarchitecture #architecture

Rebuild in Redfern by #candalepasarchitects; the transformation of the first of the pair of TNT towers that sit beside the station. Taller, slightly larger & worked perimeter, now housing, strong modelling with each facade with its own character. @cityofsydney @angelo_candas #creativeadaptation #urbantransformation #adaptivereuse #redfern #tnttowers #towerform #sydneyarchitecture #architecture

Wedge-shaped buildings of Darlinghurst 3; sharp edge of the Cafe on Darlinghurst Rd surely one of the most pointed corners /smallest footprint of any building in Sydney? Again tiny building-such a high proportion of plan to perimeter, remnant lot after street widening. @cityofsydney #darlinghurst #darlinghurstroad #urbancorner #streetwall #sydneyarchitecture #wedgebuildings

Up close at the bespoke tiling in the monumental entry portal at #verveapartments in Newcastle. In selection of coloured bands, tiling references the geological strata under Newcastle. Grouting & flush glazing installation all in.

Wedge-shaped buildings of Darlinghurst 2; the sharp edge of the Darlo Bar on Darlinghurst Rd & Hardie Sts-surely the smallest & most acute urban block in Sydney? So rare to have such a (tiny) whole block building-all perimeter @cityofsydney #sydneyarchitecture #wedgebuildings #flatirontype #darlinghurst #darlinghurstroad #hardiestreet #hardiestreetsydney #cornerpub #sydneyhotels #1920’spubs #triangularblock #tinyblocks #nosetbacks #urbanarchitecture
