At Henry Turner South Pavilion, the back façade is just as important as the front elevation! An interface that connects the pavilion to Victoria University, it was important to create an entrance that was open, inviting, and didn’t feel like it was a secondary entry point. We are patiently waiting for the landscape to establish as this will only further enhance this area!

Great to see the internal linings being installed at Altona North Childcare. Not long to go before the project is complete. We’ll be sharing more photos of this project in the lead up to Practical Completion!

Caloola Reserve Pavilion - Articulated as 3 complimentary objects in the park, this unique pavilion serves many sports including tennis, soccer and cricket. The building, therefore, must relate to the large sports fields for cricket and soccer to the north, whilst equally addressing the tennis courts to the south. A centralised multi-purpose social space is shared by all users and takes in views both north and south. Support spaces for kitchen, store and amenities are positioned to the sides to enable the dramatic see-through space to be realised.

We are excited to see Deep Creek Pavilion in its final stage of construction. The pavilion is split into two, with change rooms and amenities on the lower levels and the social spaces on the upper level. The cantilevered balcony edge will provide excellent views towards the baseball field and surrounding landscape.

A great shot of Henry Turner South Pavilion during a defects inspection. The new pavilion is raised above a flood level on site, thereby enjoying excellent northern views over the rugby and grid iron fields as well as providing seating plinths for spectators.

At Altona North Childcare, one of our main design constraints was an amazing existing eucalyptus tree that sat proudly within the site. Our key objective was to retain the tree, provide a connection between two existing facilities and allow for expansion. Successful collaboration by the design team has allowed the tree be retained in all it’s glory and be a key feature within the playspace.

Terrara Park Pavilion – How does the design benefit the way the pavilion works ? 

The flexible design meets functional requirements of tenant clubs, and caters for a wider range of sporting codes and broader community use. The elongated footprint supports the field configuration minimising distance between amenities to each field. The pavilion has an immediate presence within the park setting. The striking roof form, screen and cantilevered covered area is centrally located. The multi-purpose room opens onto the pavement and ovals beyond which provides a key focal point, an area for a gathering in the shade, encouraging park users to stay and utilise the pavilion amenities and spectator seating.

Deep Creek - Some great looking ArchClad profiled colorbond cladding being installed on the upper cantilevering form. The balcony will be a great spot to watch the baseball action from too!

Canadian Solar MSS - Distributed across three levels, the Canadian Solar MSS office fit-out provides an open and interactive workspace for both permanent and visiting employees. Feature timber details and specialised planter storage boxes were used to create a warmer and more natural space and pops of red and orange were used throughout the building to strongly capture the company’s identity.
