Apparatus is working with the City of Melville to develop a gateway artwork for the Riseley Street Activity Centre. The site identified for the artwork is in the roundabout road reserve at the intersection of Riseley and Willcock Streets. The City of Melville’s vision is for a bold, gateway artwork with strong vertical elements and integrated lighting. The roundabout is highly visible, high-traffic location, and the artwork will require specific design and engineering requirements to ensure it is fit for purpose.
A stand-alone sculptural piece envisaged as a signature piece for the Riseley Activity Centre. The artwork will become an icon that attracts wider visitors as well as inspiring local workers and residents for many years to come. This artwork will assist in slowing traffic flow through this key intersection, providing interest for pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
The project was initiated through the City of Melville’s Percent for Art Scheme.
