City of Perth Library

City of Perth Library Facade.

Facade

FORTH’s engineering services were requested by DORIC to develop the detailed design of the stone-clad 7-storey circular building façade. The façade, designed by Kerry Hill Architects, consists of a proprietary sleeved mullion system clad with local WA stone to achieve a faceted spiral appearance around the full 360-degree perimeter.

Stone cladding is interspersed with vision glass and aluminium spandrel panels. FORTH was appointed to assist with balcony glazing, the internal curved-glass atrium, skylight glass and framing, and frameless balustrades.
