PUMPHOUSE POINT SHOREHOUSE ADDITION

LAKE ST CLAIR, TASMANIA

A new lounge & dining extension has been sensitively grafted onto the existing heritage-listed Pumphouse Point Shorehouse at Lake St Clair.

Remotely located in Tasmania, hugging the shore of Lake St Clair in a renovated 1940’s HydroElectric Substation resides the boutique Pumphouse Point Hotel’s dining facility. An additional communal area was developed adjacent to the existing building to allow for a greater functioning dining setting and lakeside lounge.

The extension is accessed via a minimal glazed link punched through an existing window, leaving much of the original building intact. The brief was to create a space that would encourage guests to linger and enjoy a drink before or after dining, to play games or just engage with other guests.

The project design is sensitive to the Heritage fabric and wilderness context whilst creating a clear distinction between old and new. Furniture, fabrics and colours were selected to ensure they reflected the industrial surroundings, the immediate wilderness and that they were comfortable and subtle.  A variety of styles of seating and tables allow guests to choose a space which best suits their mood.

The locally built pre-fabricated buildings sit lightly on the ground creating a sustainable solution with minimal impact. It breaks the paradigm of transportable buildings by delivering a spacious interior with engaging volumes and materials, showcasing that an excellent interior space can be achieved within the realm of contemporary transportable design.
