Elizabeth Bay Marina - Traditional Nautical concept design
Additional description of the visual elements of this concept design:
What you would see:
- Solar panels on one roof structure
- Roof rafters extended on one building to provide a trellis effect, which also frames the harbour view from the entrance
- Timber piles with large timber block logs along the fixed platform edge
- Access gates in a rail and post configuration
- Set of port holes on the front façade facing Beare Park and on doors in the facility.
Sustainable measures include:
- Recycling existing deck structure for interior joinery, outdoor benches and tables
- Solar panels
- Recycling rain water
- Use of low maintenance materials – marine grade stainless steel, concrete flooring for the fixed platform, fibre reinforced plastic for jetty elements
- Prefabrication as much as practical.
- The building’s colour scheme will assist blending the facility into the local context
- The colour proposed is similar to the marina facility; while it will be new, the colour will be generally what you already see at the marina
- The use of large glass panels on the front and side of the buildings visually breaks up its form, reducing its perceived bulk and allowing more light into the buildings
- The gap between the two sides of the building maintain a view corridor to Sydney Harbour and back to Beare Park when viewed at either end.
