West Footscray

The surrounding local industrial environment inspired the design of the Gate for West Footscray Neighbourhood House. The piece was constructed from both new and recycled materials collected from the area. Working closely with architects WMCQ the gate was to complement the buildings design, which was based on the local shipping and railways yards. “As well as giving the work an industrial feel by using recycled railway pins, wood and cortin steel,” said Jos “I wanted to add a lightness to the entrance to the building. For this reason I sought inspiration from Japanese design for the composition of the gate. This way I felt I could achieve both.”
