Bird Pond

This is a new standalone hospitality building provided by AIAL for the retail operator, The Percy Café located in the heart of ‘The Landing’ commercial precinct. The building is surrounded by large industrial facilities within a landscaped park with walkways and bridges which circumvent the storm water ponds.

Our response included our concept of a bird drinking from the edge of the pond.This concept was maintained from initiation to completion with the form created through a large clean angled roof on a light steel frame.

The glazed enclosure is significantly set back from the roof line further accentuating the form and creating large covered external seating areas. This creates the desired visual presence encouraging workers and passers-by to visit Percy in the more relaxed environment.
