THE EIGHTH PHILOSOPHY

The Eighth is a building on the cutting edge of what’s possible when a holistic approach to living is combined with a design and architectural approach that centres the human need for connection, a sense of belonging, and balance between all the different aspects of our lives. The Eighth’s distinct sense of place makes it a destination for living, dining, relaxing, recreation and working unlike any other in Australia.

The vision for The Eighth was inspired by developer Nicolas Crema and architect Peter Kennon’s determination to create a building that caters to the individuality of its residents. From the project’s inception the pair focused on experienced-focused living through a building filled with possibility, and curated and purposeful spaces that enhance residents’ lives. A building based on interconnectedness and a heightened sense of being.

The Eighth offers a limited collection of 36 private residences, designed by renowned interior designer Miriam Fanning of Mim Design. Spread over the top 12 floors, each floor comprises no more than four corner residences, with every single residence having private lift access into individual curated private lobbies, a feature first for Melbourne.

The Eighth Building

THE EIGHTH PILLARS

The philosophy behind The Eighth is based on five pillars: Taste, Live, Work, Play and Restore. These deeply human elements are nurtured throughout this building via its materials, spaces, design and connectedness.


Taste

Taste

The Eighth’s buzzing cafe and sophisticated wine bar are spaces that enhance the time you spend doing what you love. At The Eighth, these spaces are extensions of residents’ apartments, and offer areas to work and play in.


Live

Live

The Eighth allows you to curate life for yourself. These expansive and timeless private residences feature natural materials and are finished with high quality custom detailing and furnishings. They are intuitive, comfortable, inspiring spaces that enable what's important in life.


Work

Work

Real and lasting work-life balance is possible at The Eighth, a place where its office spaces are designed to inspire and stimulate. And where residents will be inspired to work from the rooftop, the cafe or wine bar, and their own residences.


Play

Play

The Eighth offers more than just recreation – its spaces allow you to connect with others, and they stimulate your senses. Its dining and drinking options, and rooftop pool, are purpose-built to easily integrate play into the everyday.


Restore

Restore

The opportunities to incorporate wellness into everyday life are part of this building’s DNA. The Eighth’s European-inspired day spa and wellness level includes a spa, steam room and sauna, hammam, experience showers, relaxation beds, treatment rooms, and a fitness studio.
