5 Melville Street - Vulcan Works
21.09.13 - 22.09.13 (11.00-16.00)
5 Melville Street, Perth
5 Melville Street - Vulcan Works - Image 1

Studios and Residence, 5 Melville Street, Perth; combines studios for an artist and an architect with workshops and living space. The building presents a tall minimalist facade to the street with a single ‘civic window’ or ‘cabinet’ which will house a series of invited art works and installations. Significant artwork is also exhibited within the building on all levels. By adopting an unorthodox approach to plan and section the building negotiates the difficult site conditions to establish a new-build contemporary design within its urban context. The elderly back land workshops at the rear of the site have been renovated as an integral piece of a progressive and regenerative process of conservative surgery as advocated and practiced by Patrick Geddes (generalist thinker and educationalist; 1854-1932).
