Blue Mountains Cultural Centre
Katoomba – 2012
The Blue Mountains Cultural Centre is a new complex designed to service the arts and cultural needs of the Blue Mountains. The brief was to design seating and furniture for the outdoor courtyard and viewing platform. The design needed to be in keeping with the architecture of the building, that references the sandstone escarpment and horizontal lines of the distant mountain view. The benches are to be used by laptop users, tourists, children, the elderly, people in conversation and individuals, so flexibility in design and use was paramount.
Liana Lounge – 2011
The Liana is a long-stemmed woody vine which is rooted at ground level relying on surrounding structures for support. Following this, the Liana Lounge concept binds a sinuous HDPE clad steel structure to a pre-cast concrete host. The green HDPE vine winds its way across the concrete, creating a vast array of resting positions, encouraging exploration and play. The pre-casting includes water shedding details and accommodates LED lighting transforming the structure by night.
Sanctuary Cove – 2010
This custom furniture suite was developed specifically for the Mariners Village, which features a marina catering for a variety of vessels. The Village is a central area of the resort for speciality shops, fashion boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. Inspired by the forms of boating and sailing vessels, the furniture makes direct reference to the details of ships decks and boat moorings. The range included a variety of seating elements, bins enclosures and bicycle racks that met both user accessibility and maintenance requirements.
