  8. 8. 8 4. Site Analysis TAYLOR’S UNIVERSITY MAN-MADE LAKE Location of site for Lakeview Cafe
  9. 9. 9 5. Proposed Site Options Although, Lakeview Cafe aims to be a cafe that is actually built on the lake, there are a number of reasons why alternative sites should be considered including the possibility that the natural scenery could be destroyed by the construction of a cafe on the lake as well as threats to the lake’s natural flora and fauna. Accordingly, the Building Committee were charged with the task of identifying whether there were any other suitable sites in the Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus area that should be considered for the cafe’s new home. These were the proposed sites: Site A (preferred site) - At the far end of the lake, on the lake. Site B - On the empty land area beside the lake. Site C - Built above the car park nearest the lake. Site B and C were proposed because they both provide views of the lake. Thus, they possess the ability to fulfill the theme of Lakeview Cafe.

  11. 11. 11 6.2 Visual Statement Lakeview Cafe will be developed using the latest environmental and sustainable considerations. It is intended that Lakeview Cafe will provide a fully functional facility, which becomes a hub of activity throughout the year. Ensuring the cafe is able to deliver its promise of providing a unique experience to customers will be of primary importance, however, it is also important that the facility provides a welcoming appearance, which is homey and comfortable. The building should present an image consistent with the campus environment and current ecological sustainable development (ESD) principles without dominating the landscape. It should be: Low key but distinctive Be readily identifiable and welcoming Be constructed of high quality, durable materials Include principles of ESD design Maximise the use of the available open site Seamlessly integrate with the local environment Minimise the impact of the built environment on its surroundings Express image and functions of Lakeview Cafe Repeat, borrow or redefine landscape and building elements from the local surrounding area
  12. 12. 12 6.3 Siting and Orientation Considerations The building’s siting and orientation should: Take advantage of the views Take advantage of natural winds Encourage passive solar design Have a clear and identifiable main entry 6.4 Spatial Requirements It is expected that the cafe will have only one level. The eventual size of the new building will be driven by a number of factors including: 1. Minimum functional requirements 2. Anticipated growth 3. Site size / location 4. Cost / budget 6.5 Services It is anticipated the cafe’s building’s services will comprise the following: 1. Mechanical o Mechanical assisted ventilation o Air conditioning o Exhaust to all kitchens and toilet facilities 2. Electrical o Lighting (general, feature, security, emergency, exit, etc,) o Power – electrical o Emergency equipment and systems o Security access control, CCTV, intercom o Smoke detectors 3. Communications o Telephone o Wireless LAN 4. Hydraulics o Hot and cold water supply o Sewerage o Rainwater harvesting o Fire protection services
  13. 13. 13 6.6 Building Materials and Finishes All building materials should be carefully selected in respect to: minimising the need for and duration between maintenance; minimising the embodied energy required during manufacture and transport to site; maximise the use of appropriate recycled materials; response to site context, landscape and locality; quality finishes that offer value for money. 6.7 Acessability Access for those with Disabilities -In developing Lakeview Cafe, facility that allow for easy access for the disabled will be taken into account.
