Beaches

Restrooms - Shelters

Beaches is a simple shelter: timeless in shape, functional to the brief, and simple in production and installation. The key design feature is the play with the energy of sunlight and its shadow projections within the pavilion. The sunlight is broken through timber or aluminium battens in the ceiling of the pavilion to project shadow lines within the structure that change in shape throughout the day as the earth is spinning. The robust steel frame with its distinct pitching roof can adjust to its unique environments, surrounding landscape and build form. Various combinations are possible with only one base design. The roof pitch can be linear in one direction but can also be arranged in distinct M, X and A shaped form.

Materials:

  • Frame: Steel (Painted / Gal)
  • Roof: Colorbond / Polycarbonate
  • Soffit / Sunscreens: Miniorb / Timber / Aluminium
  • Column Infill: Timber / Painted
  • Fasteners: Galvanised / Stainless Steel
