Coogee Pavilion 

Urbanite have used the Coogee Surf Life Saving Club cap to inspire the design of new building signage and graphics for the Coogee Beach Lifeguard’s Pavilion upgrade, designed in conjunction with Brewster Hjorth Architects.

The pavilion has been updated with new male and female change rooms, a family change area, kiosk, and facilities for lifeguards and volunteers.

Custom typography and iconography featuring the club colours of ultramarine and sky blue, as well as the simple single line design, have been used to create a sensical hierarchy of communications throughout the space.

DIVING IN

The brief asked for a playful system to help soften the aesthetic of the new concrete and metal architecture. With a focus on the front façade and what the structure would look like from the beach, the messaging needed to consider safety as a key aspect of the design.

Long-distance signals from the sand including the first aid cross were positioned as beacons visible across the beach, with the custom-designed Coogee centric placemaking font cast within the flat concrete during manufacture.

Mosaic tiles have been used to reverse out pictograms and information boards are designed inkeeping with the building façade allowing lifeguards to update weather, tides and marine dangers, safety tips, patrol times and beach rules.

PLAY SPACE

The family change area features a bench space for small children to stand on while parents change them. Children can interact with the space by measuring themselves against a structural column that features a playful height marker applied as a graphic.

The consideration of strict regulations applied to this public space. With high amounts of pedestrian traffic and multiple architectural functions, there was a need to employ a number of statutory and operational signforms. These signs, while regulatory in function, have been thoughtfully considered and adhered to whilst delivering an engaging space for the community to enjoy.
