Description

St John’s Lutheran Church in Perth, Western Australia. Built in 1936, St John’s was the first Lutheran Church in Perth. It was designed by architect Richard Spanney and is an example of Inter-War Gothic architecture. The church is constructed from Darlington laterite stone and uses a combination of both semi-circular and pointed arch forms. Other features typical of medieval church architecture are the square tower, the solid buttresses, the decorative crenellations along the roofline and the window tracery.
