We’ve been really busy lately… and so has Peter Bennetts!
Here’s a run down of our recently completed work:
We loved the challenge of working within the heritage buildings at MLC creating greater privacy and a home-like environment for girls living away from home for the first time.
At the Junior Year’s campus at St Stephen’s School Duncraig we transformed an underutilised atrium into a playful, meandering library and multi-use space for group activities. The new space is flexible and child-driven in line with the progressive pedagogy of the school.
We’ve wrapped up construction of the new Super Clinic in Karratha providing comprehensive health care to the local community. Our design embraced the opportunities that the unique culture of the Pilbara making it a truly inclusive community facility.
Tom Fisher House in Northbridge provides safe short-term accommodation, a laundry, kitchen and even kennels in the heart of our city. Importantly by including outreach services clients can access the support services they would otherwise struggle to connect with.
AFFORDABLE, COMMUNAL WORKPLACE
The Claisebrook Design Community is an exciting project on the fringes of Perth city. An existing sawtooth roof warehouse and double story office has been transformed into a series of functional and flexible multi-use co-working spaces for creators and makers. We can vouch for the great coffee at Dr Claus!
Our project at Elizabeth Quay has been a big part of the office for the last four years. It’s a building that feels like its part of the public space, equally valuing each view too and from it.
It mediates between the Bell Tower through the choice of metallic screen, its relationship to the new ground plane through its curved form and a desire to reference the great Australian pub through its tile cladding.
