About the project
The Sydney Airport Control Tower designed by Anchor Mortlock Woolley (now Conrad Gargett) is an emphatic arrival statement into Australia's busiest airport.
The design has a slender stayed mast from which the cabin cantilevers, stabilised by stainless steel rods in the angled glass joints.
Below the cabin, the six pods of the cloverleaf shaped main deck contain technical and support rooms. Vertical circulation is expressed with the lift running on the outside of the central column in a glass shaft and the escape stair unfurling in a spiral form. Ancillary facilities are located at the base of the building.
