New Apartment Building Is A Work of Art

Friday, 01st March 2013

Progressive Sydney development company Ceerose has put the ART into apARTments by treating its latest building as an urban billboard.

The recently-completed Eden in Chippendale uses vertical louvres of varying colours and textures on its eight-storey facade to create a giant piece of urban art. Up close, it's just part of the colour of the city, but when viewed from afar a distinct image emerges of fabric flowing in the breeze.

Architect Tony Owen trialed five visual concepts, include the face of a beautiful woman. He put them on his company's website, and asked the public to vote. Some Council officers even registered their preference, with the abstract fabric design being judged more appropriate than the graphic of the attractive blonde, the floating clouds, the cityscape and an eye.

Eden, at 19-31 Goold Street, overlooks Central Park - the former CUB site. It has 26 units, including single-level studio and one-bedroom units, and the double-storey two and three-bedroom apartments.

While the two-storey configurations have their roots in a traditional Victorian terrace, those at Eden have evolved into ultra modern sanctuaries with dramatic voids, double-height windows and wintergardens.

Interiors are bold, with colourful tiles, exposed storage options, beautiful joinery and kitchens designed as large pieces of furniture to maximise the use of space.

"The western side of Eden is visible from surrounding areas so we took the opportunity to treat the facade as a piece of sculpture in an urban landscape," says Owen. "Louvre fins in different colours and textures create an image that plays up the complexity of living in the city."

The vertical louvres are there for more than just show; they function for sun control, privacy, and help to modulate temperatures within the apartments.

Ceerose says Eden was a difficult build because the site is compact and hemmed in by established structures. "But the results are rewarding," says Edward Doueihi, Managing Director of Ceerse. "Chippendale is home to a thriving arts community who appreciate the artistic effort we have put into Eden."

Eden has just three two-bedroom apartments remaining, starting from $765,000. More information is available through Rob Marks of Live Property Group on 0412 262 744.
