The parkside location is frequented by joggers and a local scout group, which called for a design that was multi-functional space. The architects responded by designing a pair of concrete buildings with mono-pitched roofs and shingle cladding. The buildings share a courtyardwith a campfire at the center. Concrete and timber walls surround the space and provide a secluded area that faces away from the street.
