The Indiana building could be refitted, while retaining the existing facade. The additional amenity offered by a refit would be limited.
Give your feedback on the proposals for the Indiana site.
The jury will consider:
In March 2019 Minderoo invited members of the public to share their ideas for the Indiana site and Cottesloe foreshore.
Initial suggestions from the community included a beachside pool, an arts and cultural hub and a greater variety of food and beverage offerings to cater to all tastes and budgets. The community emphasised the need for further activation of the site, but also the importance of retaining Cottesloe Beach’s existing culture.
11 invited Australian architecture firms reflected on this feedback and developed design concepts for the site. The competition jury, chaired by esteemed WA architect Geoffrey London, selected four finalists. These four designs were then published online for community feedback.
This feedback was collected, and the jury deliberated on the four designs.
“Two islands” and “A form shaped by ocean forces” were judged as the strongest of the proposed new designs by the jury.
The two finalists have now provided additional material to support their proposals.
The jury will consider the new information before a final decision is made. Keeping the existing building is still an option Minderoo Group will consider.
Minderoo Group is again seeking public feedback on the proposed designs.
Minderoo will be running a series of community consultation sessions across Perth to gather further feedback on the designs.
This next round of feedback will then be collected and considered. Minderoo Group and the jury hope to announce the competition winner in October. Once a winner is decided, Minderoo Group will then begin work on the planning process with the Town of Cottesloe. This will involve further community consultation.
