Council endorses amended concept designs

Following community consultation in September 2018, a report summarising community feedback on the proposed concept designs for the Bondi Pavilion Restoration and Conservation Project went to Council for consideration on Tuesday 20 November 2018. The report recommended a number of changes be made to the concept designs based on the feedback we received from the community.

Council endorsed a revised concept plan to progress to the next stage of the process - detailed design. A summary of the amendments to the concept plan include:

  • A larger space for the Pottery Studio, as well as a variation to the design of the kiln room to allow for a second kiln.
  • Relocation of the Lifeguards Room on the Ground Floor to outside the Pavilion.
  • Allowing for a designated loading/unloading zone in the southern courtyard for users of the High Tide Room, Music Studios, Theatre, Art Gallery and events.
  • Repositioning the 'Tourist Centre/Box Office' to the north of the Entrance Foyer.
  • Indicating all commercial tenancies as large 'shell space' to allow for small or large tenancies as demand, structural and heritage considerations would allow.
  • Ensuring the first floor servery room is fit for multi-purpose use in association with the adjacent rooms.
  • Increasing the size of the amenities in the Theatre Green Room.

The final floorplans are available in the document library to the right of this page. Architects TZG will now start working on the detailed design of the approved floor plan.

The community will have further opportunity (across 28 days) to provide feedback when we are at the Development Application (DA) stage. Council is aiming to have the DA documentation ready early-mid 2019.
