公共性最强的建筑,修建在公共性最强的场所——North Bondi设施与最具代表性的澳大利亚海岸生活形成了和谐的共鸣。这是一处为夏天的拥挤人群而设计的场所,使人们无需再为身上残留的泥沙、盐粒和小伤口而困扰。

The most public of public buildings, in the most public of public spaces – North Bondi Amenities resonates with life on the most iconic of Australian Beaches. Designed to accommodate thronging summer crowds, built for bare feet, salty skin and to withstand the sting of the coastal elements year after year.

Orientated to the ocean, the promenade address draws people into the building, providing the amenity of toilets, change rooms, and accessible facilities. Skylights admit generous natural light and a slotted skin draws fresh air through the internal spaces. Replacing the worn-out 1980’s amenities, the new building increases capacity and upgrades the facilities to cater to all beach-goers.

The building form is modest in scale with a modulated timber skin providing a softness and tactile engagement unusual in such perfunctory building types. The timber cladding unifies the new amenities building with the conjoined mass of the existing Sydney Water pump station. The charred finish to the pump station cladding creates a visually recessive but texturally rich variation to the building form. A green roof explores the roof-top ledges creating a fifth façade for the overlooking apartment buildings and references coastal clifftops.

宽阔的遮阳蓬和集合式的长椅为Campbell Parade公交站提供了荫蔽,同时激活了建筑的边缘地带和临街立面。混凝土材质的公共洗手台和室外淋浴区使建筑延伸至公共领域,使海岸生活变得更加丰富便利。

Generous awnings and integrated bench seats provide shelter to the Campbell Parade bus stop, activating the street façade and occupying the building edges. The communal concrete wash trough and outdoor showers extend the building into the public realm facilitating the public life of the building and the beach.

建筑的用色参考了色彩顾问Sonia van de Haar(Lymemith)给出的方案。为了进一步挖掘建筑的公共属性,Sonia使用了澳大利亚的标准配色方案,以惯用的色彩为建筑赋予了一条基准线,同时与人体尺度形成适度的呼应。通过与平面设计公司Deuce Design的合作,设计师还为建筑打造了富有俏皮感的引导标识系统,在不过度张扬的前提下与建筑及其周围环境形成和谐的搭配。

The building’s colour scheme was the result of collaboration with colour consultant, Sonia van de Haar of Lymemith. Inspired to explore the public nature of the building, Sonia utilized the Australian Standard colour palette, introducing institutional paint colours to create a datum line in the building that speaks to the assertive presence of the horizon line and plays with a sense of proportion at the human scale. A collaboration with graphic designers Deuce Design brought a playful element to statutory signage resulting in cohesive environmental graphic design that compliment rather than overwhelm the small building.
