The Long Reef Surf Life Saving Club is now complete and open to the public.
Designed by award winning Sydney and South Coast based architecture practice Adriano Pupilli Architects, the impressive structure has been designed to nestle comfortably into the natural environment and uses lots of natural materials to be sympathetic to its location.
The main building is tucked behind an existing dune with the ground level hosting a training space, gym, first-aid room and two large storage sheds for surf craft and rescue equipment while the second level has a spectacular function room serviced by a commercial kitchen and bar taking in sweeping views of the ocean.
The other two low rise buildings include a public amenities block, café and additional community storage lockers, including the Council Lifeguards and local Board Rider group.
The build utilises natural materials such as sustainably sourced timber and is environmentally sympathetic with water saving fixtures and fittings, some PV power generation, LED lighting on automated controls, drought tolerant planting, green roofs, bike racks and permeable paving.
There is also an accessible shower and toilet in the public facilities - and a lift to ensure inclusive access to the upper floor of the club building.
The new site not only helps support the club and its 1000 members to continue to save lives, but also provides a family-friendly facility that both residents and visitors can enjoy.
This project was made possible thanks to funding from the Federal and State Governments, Council, and the Long Reef Surf Life Saving Club.
