Yanchep Rail Extension

Jarni McGuire approached Apparatus to assist her with the development of an Artwork Concept Proposal for public art projects located at PTA/METRONET’s new trains stations on the Yanchep Line Extension. The Yanchep Rail Extension will deliver the last proposed section of the Joondalup Line from Butler, 14.5 kilometres north to Yanchep to help support ongoing growth in the area.

The intent of the commissions was for the Artist to create a concept proposal, including specifications of materials, patterns, colours and design, that are, recognisable on entry to the station and to enhance the existing architectural design.

Jarni McGuire was awarded the contract to design a central feature ceiling artwork on the concourse level for Alkimos Station.

  • Design development and assistance with documentation
  • Interface with the design and construction team


  • Artist capacity building and design team collaboration.
  • A civic artwork by Noongar artists telling Noongar stories.
