stablished in 1994 by brothers Adam
and Michael Roxby, the focus of Roxby
Architects has for many years been the
design of retail environments.
More recently, the company has helped
rebrand a number of small supermarkets,
including the successful Good Grocer in
Applecross, and the Rottnest General Store.
The team has also achieved a growing
exposure to medical fitouts, designing suites
for over 20 specialists including the Ramsey
Healthcare suites at the new Hollywood
Hospital Medical Centre.
Roxby Architects’ most recent success was
being appointed as the architects for the Shire
of Ashburton (Pilbara), to develop concepts for
key civic and commercial sites.
The towns of Tom Price, Paraburdoo and Onslow
have benefited from funding by the Royalties for
Regions program, to enable the communities to
keep pace with unprecedented regional growth.
With the vision and support of the Shire of
Ashburton and the team behind the Tom Price
Town Centre Revitalisation Program, Roxby
Architects has been given a great opportunity to
help create a sense of place in a region that enjoys
a unique and passionate community.
SPORTS PAVILION, TOM PRICE
Tom Price is home to more than 20 sports groups,
and the Sports Pavilion is a key component of the
Tom Price Town Centre Revitalisation program.
Football, cricket, baseball, softball, soccer,
rugby and squash players will all be catered for. It
will also accommodate tiered seating, a bar, kiosk
and function facilities.Through the use of
earth banks (natural grandstands) and the
large folded roof form, the building looks as
though it has pushed itself up from underg round
to create the necessary shelter.
As with other proposals for the Shire, selected
surfaces will feature living walls of bougainvillea
and other climbing plants to provide colour and
softness to an otherwise hard, red landscape.
PROFESSIONAL CENTRE, TOM PRICE
The Professional Centre is set to be the most
substantial building in Tom Price. It will
combine with other buildings to define
the town centre and activate the future
Amphitheatre, complete with an outdoor
screen to match what is enjoyed at the
