The Office of the Premier and Cabinet Room
The transformation of the former Hale School Boarding House into the Office of the Premier and Cabinet Rooms has created a unique civic facility for the state. The building is distinctly Western Australian using informed architectural crafting and interior design.
Additions were made proportionally, with existing built-forms delicately utilised – minimising the removal of original fabric. A new central courtyard was created, allowing people to connect and enjoy a sense of community.
Creatively inserting a contemporary workplace into an existing heritage building has resulted in a unique outcome. The broader community now has a physical and visual identity for the Premier’s workplace which imbues a sense of ownership and pride.
