Coffs Harbour 2017
The Jetty4Shores Stage is a new public recreation facility and key component of the Jetty4Shores Revitalisation Project.
Providing a ‘special place’ for small events and concerts, the stage is designed with flexibility to be dual sided and allow for a range of outdoor professional and community performances. A main stage addresses the Jetty4Shores Market Area, and a smaller stage addresses the rear open lawn area.
Reflecting the ‘flight of the wedge-tailed shearwater’ the structure is dynamic in form yet built from a simple robust materials palette which considers the coastal environment, and connects with neighbouring structures and shelters.
Integrating landscape, art and built form, the Stage features timber lining which provides a richness in texture and colour, warmth and delight. An artwork created by a local school student titled ‘Ridges’ is inscribed into the timber, and depicts the mountain ranges surrounding Coffs Harbour from a birds eye view.
