Project description:

The Northshore Pavilion is a small public information and amenities building overlooking the Brisbane River and used to engage with the community to share future plans for Hamilton Reach, Queensland’s largest waterfront urban renewal precinct. The client’s brief requested that the structure is designed and built to be demountable with the potential to be re-erected for use elsewhere at some future date.
The structure incorporates a simple pitched roof shade assembly that covers the information and amenities pods. The primary structure is made from timber so that it can be unbolted and disassembled in panels and the ‘pods’ were designed to be crane out by a truck. The wood used is recycled grey Ironbark located from the demolished Hamilton wharves.
While the high shade-structure assists way-finding to the Pavilion, the raised deck increases the visitors’ awareness of the river as its entry both steps and ramps offer up views out over water activities.
