‘Cloud’ is a light colour scheme of clean and modern lines balanced with timber joinery to add texture and warmth. Reflected light and panoramic views are drawn into the apartments via frosted mirror creating environments awash with ambient light. Cloud apartments ‘float’ above Parramatta, creating a sense of escape and retreat lifestyle.
