A reclaimed parcel of land has been redeveloped as a flagship project providing 14 small business units for rent to local companies. The diamond-laps of the cladding echo fish scales, while limited fenestration recalls fish eyes. The wave-like profile of the sawtooth roof anchors the centre in its the industrial setting, while providing north light and stack effect ventilation to the internal spaces as well as south-facing roofs for PV panels. Sliding timber batten doors with supergraphics help activate the water-facing elevation.
