Re-opened in December 2016, Arthur’s Seat is a much-loved Melbourne icon.
Working with the builder and Biowood, McGann Architects designed simple fixing details (including the corners) that utilised economical off-the-shelf componentry, enabling designers and builders to easily replicate them in the future.

The Biowood battens were utilised as a rain screen or decorative feature, vertically fixed to horizontally laid steel Duragal galvanised RHS at 900mm centers. Cost-effective stainless steel plates were utilised to secure the Biowood battens, allowing for minimal visibility of the fixing details.
The steel RHS is attached directly to the concrete facade with 70mm Wurth Ammo masonry screws.
With minimal storage space on-site—and to minimise on-site labour—Timberland were also able to provide the following:
- Boards cut to the required length
- Pre-finished, so no finishing is required on-site
- Staggered deliveries, so as not to take up too much room on-site
