Apparatus was appointed by the City of Melville to develop a gateway artwork for the Riseley Street Activity Centre. The site identified for the artwork was the roundabout road reserve at the intersection of Riseley and Willcock Streets. The City of Melville’s vision was for a bold, gateway artwork with strong vertical elements and integrated lighting. The roundabout is highly visible, high-traffic location, and the artwork required specific design and engineering requirements to ensure it was fit for purpose.
A stand-alone sculptural piece envisaged as a signature piece for the Riseley Activity Centre. The artwork is now a site feature that attracts wider visitors and provides amenity to the area. This artwork assists in slowing traffic flow through the key intersection, providing interest for pedestrians and vehicular traffic.
The project was initiated through the City of Melville’s Percent for Art Scheme.
