It's all about river glimpses and relaxing water themes at
the $130 million Rivershores development in Fremantle's
Northbank precinct. Architectural firm Hassell is behind
the ultra-luxurious development: 58 apartments across two
five-storey wings, plus a gym, infinity-edge pool, recreation
area, cafe and a 163-bay car park. The design direction?
Resort-style sanctuary: elegant interior design and that
all-important indoor-outdoor connection. The cost?
Two- and three-bedroom apartments are still available for
$865,000 to $7.3 million (ouch!). Building started in January
and you can move in next year. Visit rivershores.com.au.
What's new in design and architecture at home and further afield.

Steve Woodland (pictured above), design
director at Cox Howlett & Bailey Woodland,
received a Life Fellowship at a recent Australian
Institute of Architects WA Chapter event. It was a
no-brainer for the selection committee when you
consider Steve's incredible body of work. We get
up close with him from p86.
COLOUR MY WORLD
Perth architect firm Iredale Pedersen Hook made history
recently when it became the first-ever WA entrant to win
in the Dulux Colour Awards -- a prestigious national design
competition. It was the firm's Public Transpor t Authority
(PTA) Perth Underground Information Centre that took
out the accolade in the Sustainable Interior category. On
the corner of William Street and the Murray Street pedestrian
mall in the city, the PTA uses colour and form to create a
moment of clarity in the commuter environment. It's fitting
with the theme of the awards being 'When the World is
Your Canvas'. Entrants were from Australia, New Zealand
and Papua New Guinea. Visit dulux.com.au/colourawards.
