The State Buildings
(Old Treasury Building/Central Government Offices)
2016 Western Australian Heritage Award - Winner of the prestigious The Gerry Gauntlett Award for Excellence in Conservation and Adaptive Reuse of a State Registered Place
An outstanding adaptive reuse and conservation project on a grand scale. Over eight years and through collaboration with adjacent owners, creative thinking and innovative solutions, FJM Property transformed a complex site of three deteriorating highly significant heritage buildings, with challenging internal spaces, into a cohesive and exciting mixed-use development that has rejuvenated this historic precinct, making it once again the heart of Perth.
FJM Property has led the restoration and adaptive reuse of the State Buildings. The project has seen an unwavering commitment by the group for over 8 years with the desire to create a heritage project of international quality.
The buildings and the businesses that sit within them have a key focus on celebrating Western Australia, its landscape, its produce and most importantly its people.
After being vacant for 19 years the buildings have been reinvigorated and adapted into a mix of hotel, day spa, hospitality and retail offerings, that provide stunning experiences in a collection of buildings that are a vital part of Western Australian history.
The thoughtful and through restoration will ensure the buildings last many more generations.
