Palm Beach Pocket


A small steel framed structure, fabricated off site and carried by hand up a steep slope to be erected amongst rock outcrops and overhanging tree canopies to catch a glimpse out between the branches

When you are inside the pavilion, you are intimately aware of the tree canopy, your elevation, the birds, the position of the sun, and the slender finger of land joining Barrenjoey Head to the mainland curving away from you to the North.

In many ways it is an inconsequential structure, yet perhaps the construction of this kind of minimalist pavilion in the sometimes ostentatious suburb of Palm Beach is where its significance lies.
