This warehouse in Wedgefield (Port Hedland) Western Australia , comprises of a storage shed and office area for the multi-disciplined, labour services and high quality equipment hire, company, ‘GCS.’
This hire office and workshop facility site runs North/South and site layout has meant that the major building axis runs North/South. Whilst not ideal for passive solar design the compromise is realistic for maximising site use. Overhanging eaves are used to shade high level windows to the workshop areas and cross flow ventilation is achievable to make best use of the prevailing winds.
The resulting two storey front elevation is simply articulated to be cost effective, simple to build and attractive.
