The Quay Quarter Tower is a design by 3XN Architects going up in Sydney, with views of the harbour as well as the Opera House. Not only do these vistas make the entire building that much more luxurious, but the overall design itself is also stunning.

The building rises up with triangular sections that are stacked on top of one another. Most high-rises take on a traditional shape of a rectangle or even a circular appearance, so the use of triangles here is very different. According to the partner and founder of 3XN (as stated on DesignBoom), "its dynamic, shifted massing maximizes views for all of the building’s users while also creating expansive open spaces that encourage the possibility for interaction, knowledge sharing and vertical connectivity."
