DESCRIPTION:

Scope Building NT Pty Ltd were awarded the contract to construct a New Visitor Shelter at Watarrka National Park, in the remote area of Kings Canyon.

Works for this project consisted of adding new service connections including power, communications, water, sewerage, and paving. Along with these additions there was a new chilled water fountain, interoperative TV and signage.

This entry shelter to Kings Canyon was constructed with a rusted structural steel enclosure including three types of rusted perforated metal sheets to take the form reminiscent of an echidna.

Works also included new exposed aggregate concrete, with four different paver types and patterns, and rock landscape to cover exposed footings.

This project was awarded The George Goyder Award for Urban Design at the NT Architecture Awards.
