Perth’s revitalisation and WA’s flourishing design industry is a special focus on Indesignlive this week. We look at the urban hub at ONE40WILLIAM, which features a variety of diverse spaces – including The Aviary, a rooftop bar that brings added life and variety to the precinct.
November 18th, 2011
ONE40WILLIAM, situated at the northern side of Perth’s CBD where Murray Street meets William Street, is a dynamic addition to the city’s urban fabric – a vibrant multi-use space that has brought new life to the precinct.
Designed by HASSELL, ONE40WILLIAM acts as an urban hub, a mix of diverse zones and spaces that engage the underground railway station and connect the existing mall and surrounding streets.
Of course a bustling city precinct needs a bit of nightlife, and hospitality venue company The Publican Group were quick to jump on the opportunity for a unique new space, appointing HASSELL as architects and Habitat 1 as builders to create Perth’s largest rooftop bar.
The Aviary is a 2-level venue, incorporating The Nest on the rooftop and The Birdcage, a restaurant and circular lounge bar.
Overlooking the intersection of Murray and William Streets, the space offers stunning views of the surrounding cityscape.
Natural timber decking, trees and astro turf provide a fun outdoor atmosphere on the rooftop.
Inside, The Aviary lives up to its name with bird motifs and birdcages leading visitors through the space.
Unique materials and finishes sourced from overseas were combined with local products to create the venue’s particular ambience.
Construction wasn’t easy, with Habitat 1 and the Publican Group working closely together to optimise the functionality of the space and improve flow of patrons, redesigning and refining the bar and function areas to achieve the best possible solution.
The result is a venue that matches the functionality and personality of the ONE40WILLIAM precinct.
