Hong Kong – Benoy announced the details of its first live projects in Australia. Working with Australian developer Federation Centres, Benoy has been appointed to complete the significant redevelopment and expansion of two regional retail centres in Western Australia.
“Entering Australia is a milestone for Benoy and we are incredibly excited to now confirm the details of our first projects in the country. These appointments with Federation Centres reflect Benoy’s reputation in the international retail sector and what we, as a design firm, can bring to the Australian market,” said Tom Cartledge, Global Commercial Director at Benoy.
Benoy has been appointed as the Design Consultant for the Galleria Shopping Centre redevelopment in Western Australia’s capital. Overall, Benoy’s appointment will see the centre repositioned as a state-of-the-art retail and leisure destination in a location close to the heart of Perth.
In Western Australia’s second largest city, Benoy will be working on the redevelopment and extension of Mandurah Forum. Leading the Interior Design Concept, and collaborating with local practice and project architect Hames Sharley, Benoy is delivering its design expertise to the malls and public areas. The concept design draws inspiration from the geography of the surrounding Mandurah area and the relaxed coastal lifestyle; celebrating the city’s location with the seaside to the West and hills to the East. The concept will help to create a different character for each of the zones and provide a balanced retail experience for the development as a whole.
“Retail centres are becoming increasingly leisure orientated with an emphasis on Food and Beverage, fresh markets and spaces for ‘Pop-up’ and independent retailers; the new Mandurah Forum will accommodate these activities in an attractive and partially externalised environment,” said Robert Bishop, Benoy Director.
