WORKING ON A WA ICON
Scope of work: A restoration of a WA favourite
Located just 8 kilometres from the Perth CBD is the iconic Tudor Clubhouse that homes the Western Australian Golf Club members. Since 1928 West Australian Golf enthusiasts have enjoyed the stunning period architecture and décor that is surrounded by the lush greens.
Steve Paterson was approached in 2014 to design and upgrade the clubhouse facilities and was enlisted for his design and documentation services.
The upgrades called for a new entertaining balcony leading off the casual dining and function areas while also utilising the space below for new storage and teaching areas. Steve was also asked to redesign the front entrance to the clubhouse whilst being careful to pay homage to the prestige of the original building.
What resulted from the collaboration is a marriage of an iconic piece of West Australian architecture to subtle contemporary elements that has breathed new life into the clubhouse.
