The Langston Epping reimagines luxury living in north-west Sydney
A new frontier of premium residential living is set to transform Epping, Architectus, together with national award-winning integrated property investor and developer, Cbus Property, Hutchinson Builders, and Arcadia Landscape Architecture, celebrate the practical completion of The Langston.
The highly anticipated development features three residential towers comprising 462 residences, each with an expansive two-storey retail podium that merge at an adjoined 2,750-square-metre vibrant central public plaza.
Analysis of wind patterns and views inspired the curvaceous lines of the buildings and generated the pebble-shaped floorplans of the three towers – named Langston Tower, Central and Oasis respectively. Unrivalled lifestyle features include a Sky Lounge and Dining space on Level 22 of the Central tower, as well as podium-level gardens, a Wellness Hub, coworking space and 20-metre pool.
Architectus Principal, Farhad Haidari said: “The Langston sets a new standard for apartment living in Sydney’s north-west, with striking architecture that’s complemented by premium lifestyle amenity.
“Abundant hospitality, retail, social and wellness features are usually the domain of luxury inner-CBD apartment projects. Our design offers this amenity and an unrivalled suburban lifestyle to residents. To top it off, the apartments are oriented to take advantage of the exceptional 360-degree views of the Sydney city skyline and Blue Mountains.
“It’s been a privilege to work on the design of such a significant architectural project,” said Farhad.
Interior design, led by Senior Associate Madeleine Joyce, illustrates how the building form flows internally through soft curves in both horizontal and vertical planes. The experience is visible from the moment residents enter the lobby to see a sculpted staircase, joinery design and furniture selections that mimic curvaceous forms throughout.
“We wanted both residents and visitors to feel ownership of the suite of spaces provided at The Langston. These are places to live, work, play and entertain, but which provide a sense of home,” said Ms Joyce.
“One of the many highlights of this development is the beautifully crafted curved ceiling in the residents’ lounge and show kitchen, with these spaces seamlessly connecting to an entertaining terrace that offers spectacular views across Sydney.”
Landscape design by Arcadia Landscape Architects has created a premium public destination for the local community, adjoined to a 2,100-square-metre retail precinct. The site forms an important pedestrian link between the retail-oriented town centre and the residential zone to the east, with Epping train station at the nexus.
Arcadia Principal, Alex Longley said: “Connectivity to a community is essential for new residents so we’ve ensured they have seamless access between the communal spaces of the built form, including the co-working space, a gym and children’s hub, external working spaces, and other amenities scattered through the garden spaces such as a barbeque, pool, playground and quiet nooks.
“The site sits on the ridgeline of Epping, 18 kilometres from the Sydney CBD, and has a strong peripheral connection to its native bushland, being bracketed by two major vegetation corridors. The landscape design seeks to borrow from the character of the distant bushland landscape, bringing its qualities into the heart of this development.”
