This project is located in the Southland Province of New Zealand. It is to be a waterfront restaurant. The building will represent and emulate the early history of the Invercargill Township and the day to day life of travel that came with being a resident in the area.
The main area is the interior dining with views accorss western Southland. the north side of the building has a small space for exterior dining. the client requested a showcase space for art so in the very middle of the building we have an exhibition area with plenty of room for art.
The project is a concrete and steel structure. the main weight of the building is held by concrete columns and precast walls. The foundations over the water are a concrete retaining wall system that holds the building roughly 4m above the flood level.
