The design offers a style and
theme based on the display and
interpretation of WA’s unique flora.
n anticipation of CHOGM, the WA State
Government called for a State Reception
Centre with the highest quality facilities
to be created.
With the support and advice of the Botanic
Gardens and Parks Authority, Plan (E) planned
and designed all of the supporting external works
of the Centre, which is situated above Fraser’s
Restaurant in Kings Park. The construction was
completed by LD Total.
The design is in line with both the style of the
park and with the Fraser Avenue Ceremonial Walk
project that Plan (E) completed in 2010.
It has created a new outdoor cafe dining area
and a refurbishment of the restaurant surrounds to
include outdoor fine dining. It has also maximised
the outstanding views over Perth and the Swan
River, and projected a style and theme based on
WA’s unique flora and local materials.
