First revision of sectional drawings

These drawings are first stage design sections cut through the entire development at Dunmore East. Fig. 1 is a plan view showing where the section cut lines are taken from. Fig. 2 shows the detail sections with
(a) at the top working down to (d).

These sections show clearly the different level changes that occur between the retention slabs (slabs that hold water for sustainable flow into the harbour) and the two buildings.These drawings are still in quite a raw stage and have yet to be annotated but I thought uploading them would give a quick update on how the final major project is progressing.

Falling tide diagram

The abstract images below represent the direction of the flow out of the harbour mouth during a falling tide. The purpose of these visuals are to try and show in a conceptual way the idea behind the project. The smoke effect is the direction silt will be removed around the breakwater as a result of the architectural manipulation of the tidal flow.

Entrance to Spa Building

The image below just shows the concept ideas for the spa entrance built in grey card and shaded to highlight ground levels and light. The steps into the span building are shown in the bottom image as a elegant approach that is framed by the planes of the viewing platform which projects over the marina section.

Development Model of Site

This is a 1:200 grey card model of the final major project development. The massing of the buildings can be seen and a general form of the stage 12 design. The final slabs and landscape have yet to be put onto the model but the layout of the retention slabs can be seen clearly.
