Poured Concrete Dining Table
The outdoor dining room at the Hopetoun Road Residence was expressly made for the purpose of accommodating a large group of people without impacting the flow of the interior of the house. The steel framed windows which enclose this area slide open to create a truly “outdoor” dining experience. The choice of concrete for the central dining table was borne from its proximity to the outside and the need for a robust material. The curved edge detail on the top and legs mitigates the potential ‘heaviness’ of the form, which at four metres in length is substantial. Once we arrived at suitable profiles for the top and legs, the fabrication needed to be worked out.
