Kangaroo Bay Pavilion



Kangaroo Bay Pavilion


Situated in the heart of the Kangaroo Bay Parklands, the Kangaroo Bay Pavilion sits lightly in its context – nestled between a bay, a playground and a sports oval. A coloured soffit, crisp white yacht mast-like columns and polished stainless steel enable the form to complement its surroundings and ‘borrow’ from the landscape.

The brief for the project called for a barbeque and amenities pavilion, which also included a purposely designed ‘Changing Places’ accessible changing facility and ancillary storage. Early site visits identified a series of key views. Panoramic views of yachts in the marina and Mt Wellington beyond provide a counterpoint to the open space of the parklands and cricket oval adjacent. The planning of the pavilion has been generated to strengthen the existing site pathways, guiding pedestrian movement through and around its form.
