Broadbeach Surf Life Saving Club:
University of Queensland 2012
The brief involved re-analysing the current condition of the Broadbeach Surf Life Saving Club, through consultation with current caretakers. A brief was devised based upon these meetings, and students were asked to respond to real life constraints defined by clients.
The surf club is located in Broadbeach, Gold Coast, Australia. The project aims to respond to its immediate natural context: the surf and the park. Public functions of the building respond directly to the street and the ocean, while private functions are tucked away within the tree tops of the neighbouring park. The public quality of the street is encouraged in the permeable ground floor plan- transparency is a key concept in the design of this civic building.
