For a business seeking an office space that reflects attention to detail and a place in WA’s history, there is no choice other than Rhodes House.

The DFD Rhodes story.

The story of DFD Rhodes is, in many ways, the story of Western Australia – forged in the heat of the Pilbara, and spanning the length and breadth of our State.

It is the story of mining, earth moving and then later agriculture. But most of all, it is a story about the marriage of determination and ingenuity, and a testament to how far a refusal to take no for an answer can get you.

The design vision.

The building incorporates design cues and symbolism derived from the Client’s rich company History. DFD Rhodes’ background in mining contracting in the Pilbara region is reflected in the distinctive red Pilbara marble cladding. The Landscaped forecourt and curvilinear façade is derived from the planetary gearbox featured in the company’s ‘Rhodes Ridley‘ Truck, which was once the state’s largest road train, and a key part of the company’s history.

The primary street elevation features vertical perforated metal fins ‘bookended’ by two large marble arched elements, one of which forms the main entry.

Sun shading via vertical and horizontal screening to the North, East and West facades is utilised as a compositional tool, as well as providing improved thermal performance.

The building presents a significant landscaped courtyard to the primary street frontage, which interacts with the curvilinear façade and encourages an ‘interactive front’ to the pedestrian interface.  The design draws upon the rich architectural typology of the ‘West Perth office building’ and contributes to the character and context of the precinct through scale, materiality and landscaping.

Rhodes House will set a new benchmark for buildings of this scale and type in the West Perth Precinct.

Rhodes House will deliver a benchmark project incorporating key sustainability principles.  The building is currently capable of providing 130kW of energy through extensive use of photovoltaic panels, which equates to 39% of the building’s energy consumption coming from renewable energy sources.  Panels are located on the roof and North elevation.  The Panels on the elevations have been carefully integrated into the building façade and sun shading system.
