The fundamental architectural proposition explored in this project was how do you add to a building which has its own history and place within the existing iconic environment of Campbell Parade. The design response was to place a lightweight metal clad structure onto the roof of the existing “art deco” building. This white pristine metallic cladding with its irregular jointing patterns make for a strong visual contrast to the rendered masonry building below. As a formal gesture, the project is an exercise of clear delineation between the contemporary new structure and the old building.
