Seaford Life Saving Club

2012 Robert Simeoni Architects

Client: City of Frankston

The commission of the Seaford Lifesaving Club was won through an open national design competition. In the detailed development of the brief the ambitions of the client (Frankston City Council) and it's financial capacity lead to an attitude towards building and detailing that was accepting of rawness and forthrightness as an appropriate and possibly beautiful quality. This is especially evident in the interior architecture where the natural feel of timber is used throughout on floors, walls and ceilings to help focus on the essential quality of the spaces and their relationships to one another, the surrounding dunescape and sea beyond.
