Located at the harbour-front southern end of Barangaroo, R8 & R9 Residential development consists of 15 luxury apartments and provides a gateway which connects to King Street Wharf precinct. With panoramic views of Sydney Harbour, the apartments demonstrate excellence in sustainable design with open plan living, incorporating the highest standard of indoor environmental quality.
Embleton’s expertise and experience around noise and vibration was relied upon, resulting in the custom design of 7Hz multi-plate rubber bearings to accommodate an area of 4500m2 residential dwellings. The purpose of this type of isolation is to prevent vibration cause by future trains transferring through the structure of the residential building.
