New home for St Kilda Life Saving Club

The 100 year-old St Kilda Life Saving Club is a step closer to having a new home with the City of Port Phillip seeking public feedback on its redevelopment design.

People can use Council’s Have Your Say web page to comment on the concept design by Robert Simeoni of Robert Simeoni Architects by Friday 7 November.

Pop-up consultation will also take place on site on Saturday 25 October.

Mayor Amanda Stevens said the new club rooms will ensure St Kilda’s dedicated volunteers can patrol Melbourne’s most popular beach to the best of their abilities.

“Since 2008, club volunteers have administered first aid 230 times and made five rescues and prevented hundreds more people from drowning,” Cr Stevens said.

“We need to ensure we provide them with the best possible environment to continue their life saving work.

“The draft design considers sightlines along the foreshore for patrolling and adheres to Life Saving Victoria’s clubhouse guidelines to create this environment.”

The club rooms have been developed in a complimentary architectural style to the neighbouring Stokehouse rebuild, also designed by Robert Simeoni.

The existing club rooms will be demolished and the new design built on the same site.

Public feedback will be used to refine the final concept design before it’s presented to Council on Tuesday 9 December.
