Hex Pagoda

When we first visited the Meelup Hills Estate house to look at the site for the Hex Pagoda project we discovered the ruin of an old deck collapsing into a small dam adjacent to the house.  The owners wanted to recreate a new deck connecting the house with a covered space perched out over the water.  The house’s existing alfresco space would also be remodelled with new decking and spa installed.

The hexagonal pagoda is the centrepiece.  Special design details include curved and laminated Jarrah roof beams, cedar ceiling panelling and LED lighting.  Water-jet cut steel screens frame the hex and a central stainless steel umbrella rig braces the roof frame.  The engineering beneath the deck includes a pair of large steel support beams that cantilever some four meters out over the water.  On top of this structure, hanging above the water, the lovely hexagonal pagoda with its oriental style curved roof looks out across the property to Geographe Bay in the distance.

In the undercover area of the house the new spa pool is set into a raised Jarrah terrace with storage hatches.
