Fungi Pavilion, Raglan

Drawing the gaze downwards, into the scale of the forest floor.

  • Design Response

    How can architecture help tell a story? In this case, the concept of this pavilion is to draw the gaze downwards, into the scale of the forest floor as part of a introduction to mushroom foraging.
    As part of a new tourist venture in Western Victoria, this project demonstrates how buildings are an important part of the tourist experience.

    A current project for a local food advocate and entrepreneur, the Raglan Mushroom Tours Pavilion provides a simple space that is part theatre, part gateway and part dining hall. To make the building a key contribution to the day’s experience, the design process began through a storyboard rather a plan. In this way, the client could understand how the building frames the arrival, introduction and exploration of the landscape at a different, intimate scale.
    Using local stone and timber embeds the project, albeit small, within the local economy as well as bringing new visitors to Raglan and Beaufort.
