A high-rise building in sydney becomes a much admired green marvel

This structure is a superlative with a big exclamation point! In fact, a jury from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago gave it an award as the best high-rise building in the world. Why? Because it is future-oriented and not a concrete monstrosity; it is aesthetic, environmentally friendly and just plain beautiful. Anyone who can simply pass it by without stopping in wonder is not from this world. A green marvel behind creepers and foliage, erected on two residential towers with the help of 15,000 metres of wire rope and rods! To pull off a feat like this requires a wealth of ideas, the best materials – and the most capable experts and companies in the field. Those who came together in Sidney included: the French star architect Jean Nouvel, the French botanist Patrick Blanc and – for the execution – the Australian company, Tensile Design & Construct. In the end result of this globally unique research effort, Jakob Rope Systems also joined the group of companies carrying out the works. Their architectural ropes were best suited, both in terms of longevity and aesthetics, to enable the realisation of the daring project in the middle of the Australian metropolis. Now the structure is finished.

This project has been monumental, not only in it’s vision and design, but by providing the opportunity to push the technology of green facades beyond what was previously only a concept.
The project utilises the Jakob green solutions range;
4mm wire rope
AISI 316 mounts, greenguide swage eyes, greenguide turnbuckles.
