Aim were commissioned to develop Foxlake Adventures’ new water-based activities centre in the Victoria Docks, Dundee. The development included a new reception, changing and storage area, external terracing, jetties, pontoons access gangways, two new wakeboard courses and a water based inflatable wipe-out course.
The buildings are wrapped in a screen of charred black timber arranged as a sinusoidal wave referencing the building’s setting in the water and the historic HMS Unicorn. At the same time, the frontage provides a strong backdrop for the large FOXLAKE logo, creating a bold sense of place and a lasting impression.
Further developments will enhance the water-side of the facility using nautically inspired dazzle camouflage to break up the mass of the buildings and further enhance the striking aesthetic which has already been established.
