Bathersway Locations Diagram 2

Beach Walk Structures

On hearing about the proposal for a set of new structures that would be utilised along the stretch of Newcastle coastline called Bathers Way we assembled a proposition of how the structures could be materially conceived of, located and function together to provide a sense of continuity across a range of conditions and functions. The images below are extracted from the proposal.

The proposed design is developed from the structure of the fences that have ribboned around the coastline for as long as most of us can remember.Bathersway existing fences
