The Kelburn Cable Car Terminus Upgrade project incorporates the expansion of the existing Cable Car Terminus with a larger enclosed platform and waiting / observatory area.
The view shafts through the building space to the city and harbour and across to the botanic gardens were an important consideration leading to the transparent quality of the new Terminus and selection of materials.

Eastbourne Public Toilets
The new toilet block in Eastbourne is located in an active precinct incorporating the local pool, yacht club, scout hall, playing fields, wharf, library and village.
The concept was to wrap the pump room and the Exeloo units within a simple, light weight timber structure utilising a series of laminated timber portals supporting the roof and Saligna timber batten screen. The timber portals are separated out from the building to offer a legible structure overlaid with the carefully setout timber screen battens. Above the battens pull back to reveal a lantern top which illuminates the structure at night, and appears as a lantern.
