CODA has worked with Lotterywest and Foundation Housing to analyse the accommodation needs of the tenants of an inner-city lotteries house located in West Perth. We worked with the client to determine the potential for redevelopment at the site so that existing and new organisations operating within the lotteries house have the opportunity to expand.
We used statistical information, online surveys and comprehensive consultation exercises (one-to-one interviews with all 18 tenants) to gather information to determine the best way forward for redevelopment. Our report translated this data into a format that the organisations within the lotteries house could assess and implement immediately.
The aim of the project was to provide more amenity for current and future tenants, whilst increasing the flexibility of office space and activating the site by involving the community. Two concepts were proposed, one maximising on office space and the other adding a mixed use residential component of up to 9 stories to the site.As a result of our investigations, Lotterywest has set up a new department to review all of their lotteries houses in order to improve the not-for-profit office accommodation model.
