The North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club is a founding club of Surf Life Saving Australia. It was established as early as 1906 when a tent clubhouse was pitched on land at Ben Buckler above the beach. Since then a number of clubhouses have been built on the present site at the northern end of the beach. Now, over a century after that first tent, the clubhouse will be transformed into a modern, contemporary sporting facility.
The design by award winning architects Durbach Block Jaggers will replace the recently demolished structure that was regarded by the designers as a ‘disconnected and introverted building’ – by contrast, the new proposal aims to deliver an ‘open connected and extroverted building,’ that will increase the accommodation and overhaul facilities.
