Freo's View


Posted in architecture, city of fremantle, development, notre dame university by freoview on January 23, 2017



This is the boring bland building proposal for the corner of High and Cliff streets in Fremantle’s historic West End that Notre Dame University believes is good enough and acceptable for the heritage listed area. It isn’t by a long stretch.

I am a big fan and supporter of Notre Dame, but this is just not on!

Please do write your submissions to the City of Fremantle and the WA Joint Development Assessment Panel before February 13 as we cannot allow the destruction of Freo’s historic West End through uninspiring architecture that shows no respect whatsoever for the historic significance of the area. This building needs to be stopped at all cost!

Go to Community Engagement on the CoF website (top left) and submit your objection to this boring building.

    That’s why the design annoys me so much, Paula. it is such lazy uncaring and uncreative architecture that I can’t believe Notre Dame accepted it and is happy to pay for this rubbish.

    It’s the mediocrity of it that is so annoying. Surely it can’t be more difficult to make a building look good than it is to make it look ugly.

    Completel agree. This is facadism writ large. Take a walk along the street and look at Murray Slavin’s creative approach to fitting the modern into a heritage context.

    It looks like a pile of shipping containers ! ! It pays no deference at all to the famously historic buildings nearby. Shame shame shame ! ! !
