the eden art wall apartment development by australian tony owen partners explores the line between architecture and signs. the urban infill project is located in a varied and complex part of the sydney cityscape and is visible from many vantages. the office sought to explore the possibilities of adding to the tapestry as a piece of art in the surrounding landscape. the project is comprised of 24 apartments – mixed of 1 bed, 2 bed and 3 bed penthouses. the site is located in a narrow lane way adjoining apartments to the east, and looks onto the fraser’s central park development to the west.

 

vertical louvers of varying colors and textures create a pattern on the eight-story facade that is discernible only from a distance. up close it becomes a part of the color of the city, by when viewed from afar a distinct image emerges of fabric flowing in the breeze. five visual concepts were trialed, including the face of a kate blanchette.
in a unique approach, the final image was chosen from an on-line poll of various options to allow the public to decide the street-scape of their city. 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, and the CBD skyline.
