The building accommodates two small food and beverage outlets as well as public bathrooms; amenities which are not typically closely coupled, within a compact footprint. However, through clever planning and screening this finely crafted 'object' works. Timber, glass and metal combine to create a very robust yet welcoming facility in what has been a challenging area. Through the deployment of simple patterns and bright colour, a subtle Pacifica theme is evoked, especially when shadows from the glass canopy fall across the structure's timber skin.
