Project summary

Eden Floreat comprises 163 apartments plus café over two complexes, inspired by the rich historical context of the site, offering a modern interpretation of the Post-War International Style identified within its expansive parkland surrounds.

Architectural treatments reflect some of the raw elements that were once a feature of the Commonwealth Games stadium, with off-form vertical concrete contrasting darker accent colours to announce entrances, the communal amenity deck and the public café.

Layouts cater for households of all sizes, from one to four-bedroom apartments, penthouses and two-storey townhouses. Resident amenities include a 25m heated pool, spa, sauna, steam room, fully equipped gym, cinema, wine cellar, book retreat, alfresco dining areas, sunset terrace and a dining and resident’s lounge.

The greatest success of Eden in sustainability terms is that the project has successfully inspired affluent residents who are reluctant to move from their large homes to move to a vibrant apartment community.

Western Australia Jury Presentation

Our residents are downsizers who found the design of Eden’s larger-than-standard apartments and resort-style amenities had previously been missing in the Perth community.

The standard of finish and intelligent apartment layouts exceeded expectations of residents, delivering an exceptional outcome in terms of their desired lifestyles, without the responsibilities of a traditional luxury home.

Eden’s amenities are arguably the finest in Perth and a great source of pride for the Eden community. Inspired by recreational activities afforded by the spectacular location, the design encourages resident interaction and provides a strong connection to the surrounding natural environment; fundamental for health & wellbeing.
