LUNA PARK - SITE C
A new 2 storey restaurant and conference centre adjacent to the heritage Luna Park cliff top, and the modern heritage Harry Seidler designed office building.
The site is dominated by a number of mature fig trees that define the spatial character of the site. A tessellated façade treatment to the street and entry is used to convey an idea of tree canopy while concealing the kitchen and BOH functions. Within the dining areas, full height operable glazing is used to give outlook through the majestic tree canopy to the rich and varied view of the harbour setting beyond. This is a severely constrained site however through the use of angled walls and graphic patterning and façade division, the idea of lightness and delicacy is explored in a simple and direct way
