The Crest.

Burswood, Western Australia.

The Crest sits at the heart of the Burswood entertainment precinct amongst Crown Casino, Perth Stadium and Belmont Race Course, and is a catalyst in its rejuvenation. The prominence of the site and its 360 degree visibility has led this building to be designed in the round, with the smooth and flowing articulation of balconies achieved on all elevations. Furthermore, artwork has been incorporated throughout the building at various scales, marking the entry spine and running the full height of the building to be perceived at the larger urban scale, and more intimately where balustrades are applied with a perforated metal frit experienced at the human scale.


The Crest hosts 168 apartments, incorporating 1, 2, and 3 bedroom units with a generous residents lounge and outdoor entertainment facilities including pool, sundeck, lounges and communal kitchen facilities. It also benefits from its proximity to outdoor lifestyle facilities including a cycling track and a river jetty. A Woods Bagot Project.
