We built this and it featured in Green magazine: The Deck Northshore, Hamilton
Privileged to work on a project of the calibre of The Deck at Northshore, we are thrilled to see it featured in Green Magazine (Issue 58).
The article highlights the approach architect Anna O’Gorman took to designing a suitable landmark for the site. The most exciting part for us as builders was working with the amazing salvaged wharf timbers, bringing them together to create a dramatic angled roofline housing a warm public space with clean timber finishes.
Please find a full transcript of the article below:
Anna O’Gorman is no stranger to community architecture and responding to place within the built environment, and neither is The Northshore Pavilion in Queensland. Her design of the riverside public gathering platform expresses the idea of a temporary building as a landmark, utilising prefabricated components to enable future relocation and incorporating wharf timbers salvaged from the site. The primary element of the structure includes smaller pod buildings connected by a platform under a folded timber canopy – a unifying component that illuminates the pavilion as a beacon on a site generally described as immense, flat, hot and glary. A truly Australian landscape.
This was our second project with Anna O’Gorman, see the apartment renovation we completed with her at West End.
