Yagan Square, a new hot spot in Perth designed by Lyons Architecture in collaboration with Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects and landscape architects Aspect Studios has won Best Interpretation Project at the 2019 WA Heritage Awards.
Won by the Lyons design team through design competition, Slattery provided detailed Bills of Quantities and cost management services to preserve the integrity of the design within delineated budget parameters.
A complex redevelopment of the iconic Horseshoe Bridge, Yagan Square is a public square that celebrates Western Australia culture and Aboriginal heritage on a scale not seen before in Perth, with layers of Aboriginal (Whadjuk-Noongar peoples) stories, integrated artworks and creative digital technologies amidst distinctive landscaping and architecture. It includes an amphitheatre, play spaces combined with a great line-up of eateries, bars and other entertainment areas.
Linking the Perth CBD and Northbridge, over four million people have visited Yagan Square since it opened in March 2018. This is a new arts, culture and leisure destination in the city, attracting tourists and locals alike; a signpost for Perth’s transformation and coming of age as a global city.
