Fawkner Administration Building

Fawkner Administration Building. 2005 AIA Architecture Award Commercial New Category

Fawkner administration building

Designed for Melbourne’s largest cemetery that receives over 2 million visitors per year, the administration building is the focal point of the main Sydney road park entrance.  The building provides information services to visitors and accommodates cemetery management, sales and operational staff.

The building responds to the two long east/west frontages, by contrasting a wall of polished white concrete panels to Sydney Road, with a large perforated stainless steel roof overhanging a glass curtain wall facing the cemetery landscape to the west.
