Project Name: Bantry Bay.
Location: Middle Harbour, Sydney.
Designer: MacCormick & Associates Architects
Photography: Huw Lambert.
Product Used: Cane reed.
Application: Ceilings and shading.
Story: This project consists of two living pavilions resting above a stone podium housing five bedrooms, and provides magnificent views of Middle Harbour. The highlight of this build is the steel structure that tethers the pavilions and then morphs into a dramatic canopy to protect the outdoor entertaining area from the sun and rain. The use of our natural cane reed provides a soft and natural textural feature that helps to merge the building with its surroundings. Looking through the landscape courtyard towards the front door the cane reed material lines the ceiling beautifully and provides the perfect backdrop to the garden, blending the natural elements of the landscape with the building.
