Shellharbour City Council commissioned Melocco and Moore to design a new life guard tower at a busy local beach.

The tower needed to securely garage an array of equipment on the ground floor and provide a 360 degree observation desk above with indoor/outdoor options for the life guards. The building was designed to be a robust facility. Its apparent functionality provides assurance to the public that the beach is well patrolled. The building form is in three parts, a solid off form concrete base, a glazed observation deck and a clear spanning metal roof providing solar protection for the lifeguards
