Arthur Head, Fremantle

Project Outline

The City of Fremantle engaged with the community for ideas to bolster activities and give the City an exuberant vibe.

One suggestion, to light up the historical cliffs at the base of the Roundhouse, was met with resounding enthusiasm. The cliffs have a tunnel linking the beach with the city, and a rich history dating back to the 1800s. Bathers Beach, is home to a popular sunset market which attracts thousands of eager visitors. Lighting the rocky limestone cliff and Roundhouse area that form the backdrop to the market was the perfect solution. From both an aesthetic and practical point of view, the plan perfectly complemented the precinct’s reputation as an artistic mecca.

KLD received a request from the City of Fremantle to examine the best way to light up the Roundhouse area. Developing an overall lighting master plan complete with various options, stages, implementation steps and budget implications. One key consideration was the desire to conceal the light as much as possible to allow the texture of the beautiful limestone rocks to truly shine.
