Mt Eliza

This is the Mt Eliza flats, designed by Krantz and Sheldon in 1964. A bold and striking addition to the skyline, the ‘thermos’ is a wonderful example of late experimental modernism in Perth, and according to the Architects (in 64), the only example of a truly circular multi story flats in Australia. 360 views from every floo, and central twisting stairs are some examples of the great features of Mt Eliza. Information and image taken from ‘Krantz and Sheldon’ by UWA press.
