ALDI Willetton

KPA Architects were proud to be part of another successful collaboration with ALDI and the consultant team to deliver ALDI Willetton, producing another efficient retail space.

Lift Equipt Gap Ridge Industrial Estate

KPA were engaged to design the Lift Equip Warehouse and Office located in the Gap Ridge industrial Estate in Karratha, overseeing the project through until the end of construction.

The project, situated on a 13,175m2 site, included a 1,200 m2 warehouse, 240m2 office space, 120m2 mezzanine floor, along with a truck entrance, car parking and boom gates, and a 12m x 24m wash pad.

ALDI Refresh

KPA Architects were engaged for the architectural services for the refurbishment of eighteen ALDI stores across Western Australia. 

Staged over a period of 13 months, each store had a strict 10 day completion time frame, including night works.

KPA worked in partnership with ALDI and contractor Integria to ensure deadlines were met, with each ALDI store trading as usual whilst keeping staff and patrons safe during construction.

Stargate Spearwood

Stargate Spearwood is a neighbourhood shopping centre, located on Rockingham Road in Spearwood.  KPA’s client, Carcione Group of Companies, was responsible for the original construction of the shopping centre consisting of a major tenant and approximately 20 specialty shops, and have managed and owned the property since. 

Following the recent opening of Spudshed in its flagship, “return-to-roots” store, the proposal for the balance of the site includes the reconfiguration of vacant tenancy space to allow for new use, new landscaping, a new covered alfresco parklet space, in addition to building alterations including raised fascias, features, cladding and signage.

To create a centre that suits the long-term local residents, as well as the incoming next generation, the overarching design strategy was to achieve a modern aesthetic whilst maintaining references to the rich cultural heritage and history of the area and the site.  In response, the palette includes high and low contrasting colours, angular and perpendicular building lines, as well as varied scale and texture in materiality; showcasing elements of the local vernacular against a more modern architectural style.

Beeliar Hive Shopping Centre

Beeliar Hive Shopping Centre is a family oriented neighbourhood shopping centre consisting of an ALDI Supermarket plus 1000m² of specialty tenancies including food tenancies and an alfresco area.

The brief from the client was for a centre that was modern, simple and functional.  Public artwork features strongly in the design, with edges that ‘peel back’ to reveal the artwork below. The site also boasts three pad sites facing Beeliar Drive, including fast food and petrol.

Brickworks Living Building Challenge

“The Gathering” was KPA’s entry into the Brickworks Living Building Challenge design competition for a retail centre.

In order to meet the Living Building Institute’s criteria, KPA’s response was to create a central gathering space focusing on place, beauty, health and materials which drew inspiration from the former brickworks on the site. Sustainable technologies were explored and integrated into the design for the site to be self-generative of water and energy as well as produce food.

KPA Architects won Third Place Commendation – Manna Gum Award which is a great achievement for the firm.

ALDI Bunbury

KPA Architects were commissioned to document and project manage the ALDI Bunbury project which was completed in early July 2017.

ALDI stores are currently expanding into the WA market and Bunbury is a premium opportunity to roll out. The site is set on the corner of Edward and Spencer Streets with extensive street frontage and close proximity to the Bunbury CBD, all civic and commercial amenities are within walking distance.

This site was the former home of St John of God Hospital, upon completion the store will provide local customers another alternative for their shopping needs.

Bicton Dan Murphy’s

KPA have completed the largest Dan Murphy’s store in Bicton, WA at the western end of Melville Plaza.

This refurbishment was a very complex process due the many prior uses of the existing building.  KPA are proud of its achievements due to the challenges and tight time-frames faced during the design & construction stages.

Kwinana Marketplace Supermarket Extension

The Kwinana Marketplace Supermarket Extension involves the demolition of an existing part of the shopping centre to allow for the long awaited arrival of Coles Supermarket to the Marketplace.

This project also involves the inclusion of a new Liquorland and tenants, along with existing mall and tenancy modification works. New works also involve loading dock modifications, car park alterations and addition of shade sails to specific car park areas. The new Coles Supermarket design ties in cohesively with the existing development and will bring new and former customers to the Marketplace.


Stirling Central Shopping Centre

The redevelopment of the Stirling Central Shopping Centre includes alterations and additions to the existing shopping centre.

The overall scope captures internal and external alterations to existing major tenancies to include new tenants, various specialty tenancy reconfigurations and refurbishment of existing malls and amenities. This project will incorporate site works including levelling and reconfiguration of an existing area of car parking, external pedestrian access ways and paths, new loading dock, utilities and services, landscaping and other associated work.
