The magic of the extraordinary is found woven throughout the tapestry of ordinary life - magic is what adds that little extra. The original inspiration for the building's striking profile came from a trip to Canada, the designer transfixed by the wonderful geological staging of two rocky outcrops. Our challenge was to draw an inspiration that shared progeny with this vision; to find a compatibility of imagery and theme. Visiting the site, Beau visualised a river between the two rock crags, winding and shimmering, a breakwater against the tectonic forces pulling them apart.
To meet extraordinary challenges, we must apply extraordinary solutions; not to imitate a scene but reflect the sensation of witnessing it – dragging you from waking life to dreamlike suspension. To return us to that moment of wide-eyed awe in the face of nature…to where the ordinary takes on a glow and wonder all of its own.
