WAC Patrick AutoCare
Perth Airport, 2010
Patrick Autocare is a 6,200 square metre industrial and commercial facility developed by Westralia Airports Corporation. The design evolved directly from the functional program and expressed in three main architectural elements; the ‘lantern’, the ‘shed’ and the ‘bunker’. The ‘Bunker’ is a single storey element at the northern end of the building. It is expressed as a simple concrete paneled box, heavy in detail and in contrast to the metal sheet cladding. The first floor ‘Lantern’ accommodates office space and screens mechanical plant. It dramatically cantilevers ten metres and is the signature element of the building. It is clad in translucent material, bringing a visual lightness by day and with backlighting the glow of a beacon at night. The ‘Shed’ is a large monopitch roofed warehouse, clad in metal profiled sheeting. The roof is iconic, with a curved ridge line and bull-nosed awning, giving it an organic shape. The layout of the staff and visitor car parking has been treated in a similar graphic way with extra wide road markings in a radiating pattern. The building whilst being built for a modest budget has clarity and robustness in response to the use, scale and context of the site.
This is a sacred building to amplify Chi energy and it is designed with proportions of Phi (Golden Section), Fibonacci and feng shui. It is in a remote location that will use innovative construction techniques and local materials. In design phase currently.
