Sergeants Mess Function Centre
Over the recent years, former prominent army sites on Sydney Harbour are converted into leisure facilities, promoting pleasure over security. Chowder Bay is one them. The biggest existing building on this site is visible from many places and stands out, disfiguring the shore. This yellow brick construction will accommodate a function centre housing conferences, seminars and weddings.
To perform this transformation successfully, the building esthetic has to shift from utilitarian to generous, from eyesore to naturally integrated. To do so, a portion of the bush behind is virtually cutout, pixilated and pasted on the façade.
The building has disappeared!
