New Western Australian Museum


Project Overview 

The new museum project involves the redevelopment of the existing WA Museum located at James Street, Perth. The new Western Australian Museum will be the state’s cultural heart and the most significant cultural development in the southern hemisphere. The redevelopment links the existing WA Museum heritage building to a much larger, overarching modern structure, with a wide-open public plaza in the centre. The design includes nearly 7,000 m2 of galleries, as well as a single 1,000 m2 space for exhibitions, education studios, viewing areas and retail outlets. The project involves a vast range of challenges in relation to interface between Western Australian Museum and the Managing Contractor, as well as heritage works.
