Arthur Head Reserve


Located on the iconic Arthur Head reserve, overlooking the Indian ocean, and flanked by Western Australia's oldest standing building, the Round House - Harris Architects' High Tide Hub is a departure and arrival point, a platform for artist talks, performances and a bar during High Tide. A simple, elegant design elaborated from the tidal patterns of Fremantle waters, this cultural encampment is the natural spiritual home for the Biennale and an innovative architectural expression of its theme. One single material is used to articulate both shell and core of the structure, and gives a nod to the industrial heritage of Fremantle.

High Tide Hub is supported by the State Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts, and The City of Fremantle.
This project is made possible by Harris Architects, OCKHM, Wood & Grieve Engineers, Gunnersen,Sikkens and Light Application.
