Brambuk Cultural Centre
Winner of a Master Builder’s award, the Brambuk National Park and Cultural Centre is a showcase for sustainable and beautiful timber portal frame construction
The curved and meandering building emulates a riverlet where indigenous people would catch eels in nets. The portal frame construction allowed a non-uniform structure that guides patrons through the information centre in a similar meandering way.
The portal frames, with tapered columns, were constructed from 100% plantation grown radiata pine LVL. Large spans and natural timber tones enhance the form and function of the cultural centre.
