A Combined Endeavor

The Harbord Diggers project incorporated work from some of Australia’s leading architects. CHROFI and Architectus worked on the design of the project, with JMD design working as a specialist landscape architect and Fender Katsalidis involved as the interior architect.

Click-on Battens were used throughout the project to create the clean linear textures Sculptform products are famous for.

A Cohesive Connection

A major feature of the Harbord Diggers project is the seamless transitions between the interior and exterior areas of the club. Blackbutt timber Click-on Battens are used along the edge between the interior and alfresco dining areas creating a natural flow.

The exterior areas take advantage of the breathtaking views provided by the location in Freshwater, north of Sydney.

A Natural Aesthetic

A natural aesthetic permeates the entire Harbord Diggers project. Features such as green walls compliment the timber Click-on Battens throughout, adopting the current trend of biophilic design.

The large sweeping curves of the structure combined with the rounded pillars laden in timber battens create a sense of natural movement and create a comfortable, natural aesthetic.

“The versatility of Sculptform cladding and battens allowed us to use timber unrestricted by the building form, creating a more cohesive design outcome. ”
