Top Ryde City Living
“Top Ryde City is an multiple Award winning high density residential development in Sydney’s inner west. Created atop an existing regional shopping centre, the residential development was conceived to have a strong community identity built around a lush resort concept. During the design process the selection of materials was identified early on as critical element in the success of the concept. The desire was to use materials in the facade which were tactile, had human scale, and reinforced the relationship of the buildings with the resort landscape elements. Being part of a tall mixed use building, the materials also needed to meet stringent fire requirements.
Prodema and Alpolic met this brief for materials. Prodema offered a palette of colours and natural patina which reinforced the resort landscape theme. Alpolic with its extensive colour options and sleek finish provided a material which could act as a foil for the natural Prodema product. Together they maintained a pattern of crisp clean lines and colour, creating a relationship between the facade materials and the lush garden resort courtyard.
Durability and simple erection methods completed satisfaction of the selection criteria and allowed flexibility in its use and application throughout the project.” – Brian Mann, Robertson + Marks
