Project Description

The proposal seeks to explore the integration of an artist community hub within Perth City Centre. The mixed-use development is primarily comprised of live/work studios, a gallery and café facilities as part of a new build and renovation of an existing school. A considered approach to both the site and brief aimed to sensitively integrate the new build elements within the existing school grounds and site. The design sought to celebrate and emphasise craftsmanship as an important industry within society. By creating viewing platforms and adaptable work environments, for open studios, the public can engage and learn about the different crafts and working processes.
