This timber boat shed is located in an isolated location at Lane Cove National Park beside the Lane Cove River. It houses a boat rental and a cafe for the public. In elevation, the shed resembles a traditional boat shed appearance with a series of gabled roofs. This simple idea of the traditional boat shed has been taken and manipulated in this boat shed design.

 

The roof  is a folded plate structure that alternates between plywood box panels and a glulam truss system that is finished with polycarbonate roof sheeting. The boat storage area spans 12 meters and has a height of 4 meters. The entire boat shed can be opened up, to allow for maximum cross ventilation, using a vertical bi-fold hydraulic door system.
