Mackenzie Place

Sutherland Hussey Harris

The client wanted a “gateway” to historic allotments within a sensitive conservation area. The building is trapezoidal in plan and intentionally prominent to signify the entrance. The roof is mono-pitch, with the apex at the narrowest elevation.

The cladding is vertical, black stained, timber battens, whilst the roof is black standing seam zinc. The facade comprises timber-framed concertina doors, which open onto a timber deck for relaxation and barbecues.

Dialogue with the street is achieved by mixed hedging, acting as a partial screen whilst still allowing the public a glimpse of the allotments beyond.
