Infinity is a mixed-use residential building, located at the corner of Bourke Street and Botany Road in Green Square, Sydney. The 20-story building includes 325 apartments, 75 boutique hotel rooms, a 450-seat conference centre, and more than 30 retail, food & beverage spaces. It has a direct connection to the Green Square train station and is adjacent to a Public Plaza and Green Square Library.
Infinity是一棟多功能住宅樓，位於悉尼格林廣場的柏克街和植物學路的拐角處。 這座20層高的建築包括325套公寓，75間精品酒店客房，一個450個席位的會議中心以及30多個零售，餐飲場所。 它與格林廣場火車站直接相連，毗鄰公共廣場和格林廣場圖書館。
Designed to Breathe. The aerodynamic form and large opening in the middle of the building serve as an entryway for daylight and natural ventilation as well as enhances the experience of end-users and influence how the building integrates with its surroundings. Infinity’s large outdoor swimming pool is situated at the base of the opening, and when the wind passes over this large body of water, it cools the air and drives it into the heart of the architecture – a central public courtyard. Infinity is designed to breathe.
專為呼吸而設計。 空氣動力學形式和建築物中間的大開口用作日光和自然通風的入口，並增強了最終用戶的體驗，並影響建築物與周圍環境的融合方式。 Infinity的大型室外游泳池位於開口的底部，當風吹過大片水域時，它會冷卻空氣並將其驅入建築物的中心-中央公共庭院。 Infinity旨在呼吸。
By facilitating natural ventilation throughout the building, the opening becomes a key component in providing better indoor air quality and thermal comfort for the residents and reduces energy consumption by minimising the reliance on air-conditioning. The complexity of the design required exhaustive simulations, wind-tunnel testing, and computer modelling to ensure the performance goals were realised. The building prioritises performance and while the opening creates a unique architectural appeal, it becomes an important design strategy that improves not just the living conditions, but a sustainable contribution to the built environment.
通過促進整個建築的自然通風，該開口成為為居民提供更好的室內空氣質量和熱舒適性的關鍵組成部分，並通過最小化對空調的依賴來減少能耗。 設計的複雜性要求詳盡的仿真，風洞測試和計算機建模，以確保實現性能目標。 建築物優先考慮性能，雖然開口創造了獨特的建築魅力，但它成為重要的設計策略，不僅改善了居住條件，而且對建築環境做出了可持續的貢獻。
Shaped by light for public benefit. Infinity is carved in a particular way so that the fluid form increases year-round sunlight to the surrounding public spaces. Compared to the originally designated massing allowance for the site, the carved and sloping form gives back much more sunlight to the Public Plaza and Green Square Library, built below ground, that would otherwise be shaded. A terraced apartment structure on the south side is designed with cascading apartments that have external terrace gardens. It is designed to allow better solar access, the terraced apartments facilitate cross-ventilation, rainwater collection, equitable apartment mix appealing to a wider socio-economic group, as well as communal gardens for social interaction.
為公共利益而採用輕巧的形狀。 Infinity以特殊的方式雕刻，從而使液體形式增加了全年對周圍公共空間的日照。 與該地點最初指定的群眾津貼相比，經過雕刻和傾斜的形式使地下建築的公共廣場和綠色廣場圖書館獲得了更多的陽光，否則將被遮擋。 南側的梯田公寓結構設計為帶有外部露台花園的層疊公寓。 它的設計旨在提供更好的太陽能獲取，梯田式公寓方便換氣，收集雨水，吸引更廣泛的社會經濟群體的公平公寓組合，以及用於社交互動的公共花園。
