Eastbourne Toilets Wins Exterior Innovation Category

The site was occupied by an existing two storey structural unsound concrete and timber frame toilet block and under used soccer club above which was demolished.

The new toilet block in Eastbourne is located in an active precinct incorporating the local pool, yacht club, scout hall, playing fields, wharf, library and village.

The brief from Hutt City Council was to construct an economic new toilet block utilising the pre-fabricated toilet system by Exeloo. The new structure also needed to encapsulate an existing concrete pump room.
The concept was to wrap the pump room and the Exeloo units within a simple, light weight timber structure utilising a series of laminated timber portals supporting the roof and Saligna timber batten screen. The timber portals are separated out from the building to offer a legible structure overlaid with the carefully setout timber screen battens.
Above the battens pull back to reveal a lantern top which illuminates the structure at night, and appears as a lantern. The timber screen will eventually weather with effects of wind, rain and sea, enhancing this small structure.

Orlando Country Estate, Marton

Situated in the heart of Rangitikei, near Palmerston North, this wedding and function centre is one-of-a-kind.

With its world class facilities, team building activities and picturesque backdrop Orlando Country Estate is a renowned destination for your next function or corporate event.

A beautiful property with rolling hills, native bush and stunning views from mountain to sea – Orlando Country Estate is ideal for corporate events and retreats. They offer a range of activities, from jet boating and helicopter rides, to golf and clay bird shooting.

Recent developments at the complex involved building a new chapel to facilitate the weddings held there. Owners Gus & Sarah Lourie, worked with their local timber merchant who chose ATS Timber to become involved in the supply. A traditional rustic look with rough sawn face board & batten exterior cladding matches in well to the existing function buildings on the property.

Upon going inside you will be amazed with the beautiful and extensive use of timber on the interior. Band sawn, custom made, exposed trusses grace the open ceiling structure. Walls and ceilings are also clad in ex 150 x 25 Kakapo Dress Grade Radiata Pine boards to achieve a nice knotty character. These boards were custom machined with planed 1 face and 2 edges to ensure a consistent width and thickness that made instillation a lot easier.

To tie it all together, custom made rustic doors and chapel windows are surrounded by wide, chunky, band sawn timbers in a rustic style.

A very tastefully designed and well thought out project that works in perfect harmony with the venue and customers they service.
