ST KILDA

SEA BATHS

This ideally positioned open rooftop is secluded and unknown to many of the people that flock to St Kilda’s famous Sea Baths precinct.  The roof top boasts 270° views of Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay and presents a brilliant opportunity to create a new public space that engages the local community in art and entertainment.

 

The proposal was to be staged in three instalments. Stage 01  being a landmark artwork installation that would be clearly visible to beach goers and therefore encourage pedestrians go up to this underutilised terrace. The artwork is provides as a photo opportunity for tourists as the piece frames sweeping views of the city skyline over the bay. We are also proposing that the piece act as a cinema screen at night to promote night time events along the roof top.

 

The proposal for Stage 02 is to extend the decking landscaping form the beach promenade to the rooftop, recreating a similar atmosphere to the beachfront on the terrace.

The proposed landscaping is to include built in seating, vegetation and water features.

 

The final stage of our submission was to propose a series of iconic pavilion canopies along the terrace to provide weather protection to the space. Taking inspiration from the palm trees that line the promenade below, the tree shaped canopies provide a unique identity for the terrace. Whilst the form of the canopies differs from the base building, we propose to use similar colour tones of creams and whites.  The design of the pavilion allows for passive irrigation of landscaping and built in furniture ensures the terrace can be used without the need to set up and set down temporary seating.  It was out goal to create a pavilion to accommodate year round use as a world class function space and give the terrace a sense of identity within the St Kilda Sea Bath precinct.
