The centerpiece of the 2014 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, is a cloud-like structure suspended above a floating bar and open-kitchen restaurant on the banks of Melbourne Australia’s Yarra River.
The cloud-like canopy sitting above the disused Sandridge Rail Bridge creates a skyline community space offering a new city vantage point.
The Immersery concept was dreamed up by MFWF and designed by HASSELL bringing the Festival’s water theme alive. Water misters, multi-level planting and a water-inspired soundscape all contribute to the sense of an urban retreat, where visitors can relax, and become truly immersed in the landscape.
The design represents the three states of water as well as the water cycles, encouraging visitors to consider how we use one of Earth’s most precious resources, at the same time as enjoying the vibrant and lively atmosphere of the festival.
