Watch Perth Station’s Artistic Flooring Refurbishment

Watch Perth Station’s Artistic Flooring Refurbishment

When visitors to the Perth City Railway Station alight from a train or walk through the turnstile into the building, it’s not a dull, utilitarian image that greets them – but one bursting with colour, art, patterns and energy.

This is in large part thanks to the 2,650m2 work of art that has been painted onto the station’s floor using Flowfast Quartz Scatter. The finish now consists of long, straight bands of different lengths and a wide spectrum of colours (including purples, greens, lilac and light red), running alongside each other up and down the concourse area.

The contemporary design studio Donaldson and Warn designed the eye-catching new surface by mirroring the station’s interconnected network of tracks, cables and lights. The oil painting technique underpainting was employed during the design, with complementary colours used to enrich the depth of the floor’s aesthetics.

Flowfast Quartz Scatter was ideal for this project, as it could be quickly applied in the desired colours and patterns (minimising disruption to travellers) and its robust nature means that it would be able to withstand the foot traffic from the station’s 60,000 daily commuters.

Watch the video above to see how Flowcrete Australia’s approved applicators went about creating this one-of-a-kind floor.
