Evoking the natural beauty of its surrounding location in its tapered and curved form, Aura is North Sydney’s newest residential tower under construction and part of an exciting renaissance for the suburb. Here, More Space catches up with Jason Fraser, lead architect with principal designers Woods Bagot, and Kirsten Stanisich of Richards Stanisich who shaped the interior concepts, to discuss the site’s unique form, texture and orientation that was central to the design approach.

North Sydney is going through a renaissance. An area that became known as 'Twin City’ and began its transformation during the building boom of the 1960s with soaring office towers for advertising agencies, banks, tech and insurance company headquarters, including the iconic MLC building that was the first high-rise office block and hugely influential to tower design in Sydney when the area was the most sought-after address for Sydney’s architecture practices too, is now being joined by glistening new residential towers that promise to bring back community to the once 19th century township and its remaining Victorian terraces and Federation houses.
