The North West House is the latest B&E addition to the Rohner Harbour complex, following in the wake of the Harbour Office. Like its predecessor, the new building also uses concrete, but in a totally different way. Here it is used to create a rectangular, fair-faced structure with interconnecting free-form columns. The effect is reminiscent of the patterns produced when light plays upon ripples on the surface of water. This watery theme is further reinforced by the translucent glass placed in front of the concrete as the external cladding. The overall form of the building is an upright rectangular prism that sits in the water at the edge of the existing main jetty. Split into two floors, at low level is a boat storage facility with toilet and other ancillary facilities. On the upper level is one large space - over 8 metres high - which can hold over 100 people. The building is intended as a social hub for the sailing community and can also be hired out for private functions.
