Deepwater is a site on the Georges River in Sydney's south west currently used for recreational boating. This project, for the Sydney hospitality group Doltone, seeks to capitalise on this beautiful setting as a location for a major function venue.
The existing building provides a framework around which new elements are added to transform the clubhouse into a top-tier function venue. These elements include a new entry and services area to the rear and a new roof and facade which address the riverfront. These two elements are both abstractions of their adjacent sites - the services area being related to the adjacent trees via a vertical screen while the glazing to the riverfront captures the reflections and light of the river in direct sunlight.
The project was submitted for a development application in December 2010 and should commence documentation in mid 2011.
