Traditional Territory: Kaurna Country
Ziptrak is the manufacturer of a patented track guided outdoor blind system, developed in South Australia. Previously located within four separate sites the brief was to develop a facility which would house manufacturing, assembly, research, distribution, and offices as well as creating a unique identity for the brand.
The required proportions of the building, and the decision to adopt a singular composition, resulted in a scaled building. Different materials were introduced on displaced planes as a mechanism to reduce the bulk and scale of the building, naturally ventilate the assembly area and provide protection to the glazed office volume. The curves were adopted to further soften the hard edges of this exceptionally large building.
The result is a facility that forges a unique identity for Ziptrak.
