East Port 5
Won through an invited two-stage design competition.
Situated an hour south of Perth, adjacent to the booming region of Mandurah, East Port 5 is the last remaining stage of the Port Bouvard development. Fifty-nine carefully crafted and luxurious apartments are located in an urban cluster on an island designed by us to allow all apartments to have northern facing open space, balconies and views to two major bodies of water, the inner and outer canals and the Peel Estuary behind.
The apartments are split into several smaller scale buildings that respond to the site in differing ways, creating a village feel and enabling urban scale public open space interventions. A sculptural caretakers house (also designed by CODA) sits as guardian to the inner canal and watches over the Entry Bridge.
