The Gatehouse is a bold, architectural insertion into the coastal township of Triabunna. The project is the first built outcome of the ongoing revitalisation strategy named Triabunna Tomorrow and despite the project’s small scale, it has a large effect in symbolising and potentially catalysing change in this former logging industry-reliant township.
The building is a roadside information stop located at the entrance to the town, that through provision of basic amenity (shelter, orientation and ablutions), entices travelers off the highway and invites further exploration of the township. The project combines this tourist focus with other community uses to create a new urban gateway into the town and a meaningful public space for visitors and locals alike.
