SOUTH PERTH LIBRARY & COMMUNITY CENTRE, SOUTH PERTH WA

This redevelopment project for the City of South Perth required the integration of a new 1500m2 public lending library within the existing 1970’s Modernist Style face brick administration centre buildings.

The architectural solution is strikingly different and reflects the nature of modern library services which offer flexible and vibrant interior spaces serviced by the latest technology such as RFID and self-checkout systems. The project included the recycling or adaptive reuse of existing structures to form a flexible use community hall at upper ground level with community centre located at the lower ground level.
