City Square
Perth, WA

Bates Smart was invited to participate in a Design Competition for the redevelopment of commercial buildings located in Perth’s business centre City Square.

The primary focus of this exercise was to analyse the proposed general bulk and scale of the buildings while considering the architectural brief and maximising potential views/vistas, podium retail and building spacing overlaid with the issue of staging.

The developer identified the biggest challenge as how to stage develop the site so it could be absorbed into the small Perth commercial market. The site includes a group of heritage buildings that form a cohesive group of public and semi-public buildings constructed between 1910-1932.

Bates Smart developed a design response in the form of 6 design options for the site that would provide a continuous, safe, attractive and clearly identified network of pedestrian paths, spaces and facilities throughout the Precinct and linked to the city centre and the foreshore.
