Water Labyrinth Forrest Place, WA

Perth’s re-developed Forrest Place contains a unique interactive water sculpture called ‘Water Labyrinth’. Designed by renowned Danish artist Jeppe Hein, the installation uses recycled stormwater cleaned by sand filters and chlorinated to swimming pool standards.

The water feature has become the focal point of the square, however the splash of the fountain created problems for pedestrians.

Project Design Brief

Designers needed to integrate a second barrier to prevent water reaching pedestrians who became too close to the water feature.

To fit into the topping slab and to integrate with the pavements construction joints, the additional drainage run needed to be less than 80mm in depth.

ACO's Solution
