78 - ABC Building
OPENING HOURS: Saturday 11th November 9am-3pm
ADDRESS: 30 Fielder Street, East Perth
Originally located in Adelaide Terrace, construction of ABC Perth’s new home in East Perth was completed in 2005. The new building achieves a stimulating and healthy work environment that is able to change in line with the future demands of the ABC by placing emphasis on the relationship between technology and people.
The prominent and public nature of the site is reflected in the buildings internal shared spaces which are open and transparent. The priority placed on such space reinforces the ABC’s public ownership and promotes a sense of community within the building. ABC Perth is the corporation’s head office in Western Australia and delivers programs to listeners and viewers across a landmass of 2.5 million square kilometres.
The building houses on-air radio studios, production studios for music and drama, a television news studio and 600m2 sound stage. These studios have been the set location for various Australian film and TV productions, and recording location for Hollywood film scores.
A splendid, shimmering metal mural from one of WA’s most important artists, the late Brian McKay adorns the outside of the Perth ABC building.
The building is also home to Screenwest and West TV.
