Having served the Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff communities since 1947, this new two-storey facility will replace the existing building. Included will be a kiosk, retail/office, meeting, junior lounge, bar, kitchen, multipurpose space, amenities, aquatic store, services yard and wash-down area.
External timber finishes are expressed throughout, creating a domestic ambience that exudes warmth and draws on the surrounding coastal beach house context.
The building benefits from expansive operable glazing for cross-ventilation and coastal views. A large public lawn with terraced decking provides a welcoming civic interface with Ocean Rd and the connecting surf beach, supporting food trucks and community events during peak season.
The overall design successfully resolves complex fire separation and bushfire rating requirements.
