Lounder’s Boathouse has been in continuous operational use since it’s construction in 1913. Severely damaged from termite attack, and close to collapse the team has worked closely with Council to find ways to retain and adapt the building.
At the core of the project was developing a solution that retained as much of the fragile timber fabric as possible. This comprised the insertion of a new structure within the old allowing the existing walls, cladding and roof to remain largely intact. Story-telling also became a prominent element within the conservation work.
