Project completed: 2017
The Northshore Pavilion provides amenity for public use and is a place for Economic Development Queensland to share information on the future plans for Hamilton Reach, Queensland's largest waterfront urban renewal precinct.
The public gathering platform by the river expresses ideas of a temporary building as a landmark. Components are prefabricated allowing for future relocation and adaption of built elements while utilising wharf timbers salvaged from the site.
The primary elements include; smaller pod buildings connected by a platform under a folded timber canopy. The canopy is considered a unifying element framing both an oasis and beacon on a site generally described as immense, flat, hot and glary. A framed view of the Brisbane River welcomes visitors onto the platform set into a habitable terraced landscape.
Beaumont Apartment Interior
Project completed: 2016
The L shaped plan of this existing apartment provided opportunity for natural light and ventilation which led to the internal wet area walls being replaced with operable sliding panels. A palette of pine and tallow-wood timber was used for new infill elements within the existing white walls.
