In the idyllic seaside town of Port Fairy, their local wharf has been transformed with a new single-storey building which incorporates a restaurant, cafe, and fish & chip shop.
Baade Harbour Australia (BHA) Architects chose to feature-rich Glulam White Cypress that utilises a unique curved bottom chord which seemingly stretches from one end to the other. Each of the King Trusses were made to be different to one another. A challenging task that made this project unique from the rest.
The final outcome was an inspiring single-storey building with 13 bolted king trusses impressively featuring from inside and out of the building.
