Glass and Sunset
From the chapel, one strolls down a path through a natural forest – which terminates in an age-old pine, marking the entrance to the triple volume wings.
Much like the chapel, the design of the venue was based around allowing the surroundings to take centre stage. The structure of steel, glass, sleeper wood and stone overlooks four inter-leading dams, which become enormous mirrors at sunset. The contemporary interior keeps to our philosophy of simplicity. The positioning of voile curtains allows for for a fluid transition from a boisterous 250 guest wedding, through to an intimate 100 guest event. The literally, rock solid, bar can cater to any party as it serves both inside and outside. Pre-drinks on the lawn in front of the bar, overlooking the tiered dams, is the perfect setting for guests to take in the surroundings.
The general curiosity of the renovation of the chapel led to the decision to develop the idea of a contemporary wedding venue – for the modern bride and groom. What was key in the development, was the desire to create a space that was intrinsically beautiful.
The environment, the materials, and basic structure needed to become the strength – to achieve simple grace, not covered-up-and-coloured- in beauty. Since we wanted to maintain the feeling that you are on a farm in the country, but with an extra touch of class, we opted for a traditional farmshed steel structure. We then filled it in with glass, stone and sleeper wood.
