Monash Recreation Pavilion, Berwick
Designed to encourage student social interaction this building houses a flexible, multi-purpose space and service areas to support a range of student activities.
The Berwick pavilion forms the north enclosure to a U-shaped courtyard surrounded by 2 storey student residential wings. It is designed as a permeable threshold between the green courtyard garden and a future public plaza with a performance shell for entertainment.
Inspired by an Islamic painting of an enclosed pavilion in a Mogul garden, the steel framed, glassy building houses a flexible, multi-purpose space and ancillary areas (kitchen, laundry, toilets, meeting rooms, mailboxes) for a range of student activities. The boundary between inside and outside is blurred by the glazed walls and large sliding doors which encourage free access between the interior and the verandah spaces adjacent. Like our Clayton Pavilion, the Berwick facility is designed to encourage student social interaction.
