Ocean Reef Marina Public Art and Interpretation Plan

Ocean Reef Marina is set to become a world-class waterfront precinct providing recreational, tourism, residential and boating facilities.

When complete, the development will feature 12,000sqm of retail and commercial space, capacity for up to 550 boat pens and 200 boat stackers, around 1,000 homes and more than 5ha of community spaces. The development of the Public Ream Masterplan (UDLA) adopted in 2020 was driven through a participatory design process, broad community engagement and coordination with consultants and stakeholders.

Apparatus were awarded the contract to work in collaboration with UDLA on integrating public art and interpretative elmeents into the public realm design. Apparatus will be working with DevelopmentWA, UDLA, the Wadjuk Working Party, and the City of Joondalup on integrating public art design, utilising the salvaged materials where possible and responding to the Heritage studies and reports through interpretative elements.
