Jetty4Shores Stage

Fisher Design and Architecture with Mackenzie Pronk Architects

The dynamic form of the Jetty4Shores Stage nests comfortably amongst the open plaza and market spaces of the Coffs Harbour Jetty4Shores Revitalisation Project. Modelled on the flight of the wedge tailed shearwater, the stage is a functional, collaborative and robust public celebration of place. Flexible and durable in form and detailing, the mainstage addresses the Jetty4Shores market area while a smaller stage addresses the rear open lawn area. ‘Ridges’, an art instillation depicting local mountain ranges, is inscribed upon the timber panelling that forms the backdrop to performers.
