St Johnâ€™s Lutheran Church in Perth, Western Australia. Built in 1936, St Johnâ€™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.
