East Village is a new retail/residential village in Zetland. This exciting project exhibits a major breakthrough in urban design that is not apparent to the public eye. Several acres of rooftop footprint has been transformed into a landscaped parkland environment – complete with waterways, playgrounds, and grassed entertainment areas for social relaxation. Coach House Timbers worked closely with DASCO and el Haddad Constructions in supplying Ironbark screens, decking and seating to help realise this truly amazing escape in the centre of a business district.
Another major feature is at the entry levels where, symbolically, the tone is set in the free-standing fins creating enchanted woodlands. Floor to ceiling timbers set at eclectic angles are set in front of huge mirrored panels to complete the forested experience. With free standing spans of 5.4m to 6.0m and greater, Coach House Timbers met the challenge by encasing metal spines into the timber to ensure its safety and ability to free stand without distortion.
