Jack Evans Boat Harbour, Tweed Heads by Aspect Studios
Client: Tweed Shire Council
Project Partners: Tweed Shire Council, McGregor Westlake Architecture, Cardno Grogan Richards, Webb Australia, Wilde and Wollard
This project responds sensitively to the challenges faced by many coastal areas -beach erosion, tidal surges and flood events. After extensive consultation with the local community, the final design preserves existing beach areas, introduces new and durable interpretations of beach-like experiences and creates a broad, high-quality, harbour-side public domain.
The use of timber boardwalks reflects the jetties of the area, while stacked, concrete fingers are a visually-pleasing adaptation of traditional sea-wall stabilisation techniques.
