Kangaroo Point Pavilion

Hawkesbury River, N.S.W

The design for a new restaurant and community information centre on the Hawkesbury River uses the iconic diamond shaped roof of the existing kiosk as inspiration to create an elegant new shelter that floats above the site. The new roof hovers above the restaurant and oyster bar, allowing the previously blocked view to the water beyond to be reinstated from the upper levels of the site. This floating roof folds outwards towards the water to become a fine sliver that protects and provides shelter to the spaces below and creates a new visual signature integrated into the rejuvenated landscape of Kangaroo Point.
