The proposed design offers an efficient floor plan to meet the SMLSC functional brief and equipment requirements. It integrates a contemporary building into the beach and wider public realm, and engages with the foreshore context through an array of terraced seating, communal verandah spaces and integrated ramps for vehicular access and passive relaxation. It provides an efficient building typology that is both cost effective and adheres to the proposed project budget.

The design incorporates complex multi-stakeholder requirements to satisfy Council, the LSC and community, as well as detailed research regarding technical equipment and requirements specific to the LSC.
