Scooter+Yee Architects used Supawood’s Wave Blades to create a stunning entry feature for a small club in the heart of Dee Why on Sydney’s northern beaches.

The long-established Builders’ Club has been located on the same site since 1958. Scooter+Yee Architects were commissioned to design a contemporary interior, which would upgrade both the facilities and the atmosphere of the club. Throughout the interior, the designers explored the concept of mirroring the local ocean and bush environment. To achieve this feel, they needed suitable linings and fittings with organic textures and finishes.

Wave Blades offered the perfect product for a ceiling feature in the entry area, as the blades could be custom-contoured to form a harmonious, rippling ocean wave effect flowing from the portico into the club.

The Wave Blades have been contoured to suggest rippling water and have been set against a black background for maximum impact. The ceiling feature starts under the portico outside, continues through the front door, then expands out to form a directional effect flowing past the reception desk and into the passageway beyond, with lighting and other services integrated between the blades.

Supawood's Supafinish concept veneer in Euro Beech has been applied to a plywood substrate and used to match the furniture of the eatery in the area to one side of the entry.

The warm timber linings, fittings and furniture, along with the rich, monochrome-patterned carpet and laser-cut, black-on-white flora wall features, blend together beautifully in a cohesive final product. An expansive live plant wall flows down one side of the interior and with the effect of the timber blade ceiling, the whole provides a welcoming and contemporary interior to all who enter.
