Ocean Edge is a multi-residential development of 101 apartments in the new coastal precinct of Port Coogee, WA. With a fine layering of scale and space, the development maximises the potential of the beachside location and offers magnificent views across the Indian Ocean and adjacent public open space.

The architectural response is driven directly by physical and cultural context, underpinned by a strong commitment to sustainable design principles and our client’s commercial objectives.

A 6-storey built form shields a landscaped central courtyard from the prevailing south-west winds, whilst a 3-storey element on the northern side allows solar access. Full width 2.8m deep balconies provide outdoor living and solar shading.  The facade treatment introduces a high level of visual diversity through sliding louvre panels and colour, and the majority of apartments enjoy cross-ventilation or dual aspect orientation.

The building has a variety of one-, two- and three- bedroom apartment types at a range of price-points to encourage a diverse population. Apartment layouts are highly efficient, minimising the loss to circulation space.

Ocean Edge has successfully met the client’s commercial objectives and provides a benchmark design standard for future developments in the emerging Port Coogee precinct. Its considered, contemporary architecture creates a vibrant presence which is not overbearing despite its size, making a positive contribution to the urban landscape.
