Berriedale - Hobart
Felicetti provided Structural Design, Documentation and Supervision
To the north of Hobart, on the banks of Tasmania’s Derwent River, Moorilla Estate vineyards is home to a cellar door and winery, restaurant, micro-brewery, and the Museum of Old and New Art – the largest privately funded museum in the southern hemisphere. From this coastal landscape setting, the dynamic shapes of the eight MONA pavilions radiate out; their bold, diamond shaped steel frames anchored to the ground by large, off form concrete blades. Weathered timber clad boxes to the rear slip between these steel structures. Dominant warped planes of silver aluminium clad volume reflect the changing environment. And over-scaled chain mesh vegetation screens between adjacent pavilions ensure privacy.
