Japanese Gardens Pavilions

Public | New

The Japanese Garden Precinct within the North Coast Regional Botanic Gardens represents a collaboration between a specialist garden design team from Sasebo and local institutions. g2 architects Pty Ltd is proud to contribute architecturally to the legacy of the Japanese Gardens through their design of the Pavilions. Informed by Principal Architect- Ann Gee’s recent travels in Japan, and extensive architectural experience, the design for the Japanese Garden Pavilion incorporates traditional Japanese aesthetics and building techniques with contemporary Australian materials.

Sited at the North Coast Botanic Gardens in Coffs Harbour, this project comprised the design of a built environment associated with the Japanese Gardens including a Waterside Pavilion and Deck, Contemplation Room, Viewing Terrace and Entry Gateway. The project required collaboration between g2 architects, CHCC, Friends of the Botanic Garden, Sasebo Botanic Gardens, TAFE and the Coffs Harbour Men’s Shed.


Here is a testimonial from our Client:

"We would like to commend the efforts of g2 architects for the amazing works they have done for the North Coast Regional Botanic Garden. g2 undertook the design and planning for the buildings in our Japanese Gardens. From first consultation to completion of the works the architects have provided services way above the quoted works and our expectations.

Ann and Oliver were open to our ideas and matched this with their efforts to background the design and construction elements of the buildings to ensure both a modern aspect and traditional Japanese construction elements were fully incorporated into the plan. All works were undertaken by volunteers, and g2 took great efforts to ensure that the project went to plan and that all building aspects  were to the highest standard.

We believe that the Japanese garden, pavilions and tea houses are unique in design and construction providing an envied tourist attraction here on the North Coast. This would not have been achievable without the extra mile traveled by g2 and their ongoing support"
