Botanic Terraces and Community Pavillion, Wildflower Pavillion


Structural engineering design


Kings Park


Peritas were engaged to design three complex shade structures and surrounding terraces within Kings Park. On the Community Pavillions, a very high level of architectural detailing gave the main support column the appearance of a wind swept tree, with the roof supported off the branches. In order to achieve the large cantilevers within the low profile of the roof with the minimal support, Peritas used a stressed skin roof structure. This approach was also used on the Wildflower Pavilion, a hexagonal roofed structure approximately 14m across supported on only 3 columns.
