An innovative vision initiated by the residential developers Wolfdene, the pavilion arose from close collaboration with Oculus Landscape Architects and Clear Graphic Design.  Conceived as a ‘lens to the landscape’, the pavilion is proposed to activate the site and engage the local community.   It consists of an experience suite and a café (that will be completed as part of stage 2), the square shaped pavilion is configured around a central grassed courtyard viewing onto a manicured axial field, and frames contrasting views to the surrounding rural fields.

External grey stained timber screens redolent of the scale and colour of the neighbouring chicken sheds enclose the pavilion.  Within the screen, the programmatic volumes are nested around the courtyard, with smaller courtyards inhabiting the interstitial spaces within.

Inside the pavilion perimeter, the material palette transforms to the richer warmth of spotted gum decking, soffits and screens, correlating with the more intimate points of interaction.

Colourful accents tied into the Brompton branding colours, activate courtyards and spaces within the pavilion, and emanate through the external screen façade acting as an inviting beacon to the local community.
