tony OWEN: Eden is an inner city in-fill apartment building in Sydney’s Chippendale area. It contains 25 contemporary apartments with open plan living for the young urban dweller. Vertical louvres of varying colours and textures create a pattern on the eight-storey facade that is discernable only from a distance. 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. Louvre fins in different colours and textures create an image that plays up the complexity of living in the city.”
