Cradle Mountain Gateway TAS

Made from 5 interlocking buildings, The Cradle Mountain Gateway project is an ode to perforated metal.

The main building is a double story visitor centre connected to 4 peripheral buildings, connected by undercover walkways.

Beyond the structural ply and its abstract angles is the powdercoated perforated panels. In this beautiful and natural setting, it is hard to imaging anything but timber fitting in so harmoniously. However, there is flexibility in these perforated panels..

Each panel has been individually designed to hug the mould of the building envelope. This collage of shapes creates a truly unique and prominent building façade. Sometimes it’s fragile like the fauna and sometimes aggressive like the Tassie Devils that inhabit the area – every consideration was made to create something that was low impact and reflective of this stunning national park.

Further on down the perforated walk ways are the pick up and drop off bus shelter and external toilet facilitates, all clad in architectural perforated metal. With the planned build time and temperamental weather conditions, perforated metal provides strong, quick and easy installation solution.

The open area and offset of the panels allow for the facade to be backlit in a stunning day to night time transformation,

Finally, peaking out from the eaves of the perforated metal walkways, you can see use of 2D imagePerf™ in a large-scale representation of the world map. The transition to this product sits effortlessly within the façade and is a welcome addition to the artistic finish.
