Middle Park Public Amenities Block wins Award

Posted by Lynda Kotze | 24 May 2012

The Public Amenities Block at Middle Park Beach won the Mayor's award at the 2012 City of Port Phillip Design and Development Awards for its architectural excellence in sustainability and innovative design. Mayor Cr Rachel Powning told the packed crowd of architects, planners, and builders that the Middle Park Beach Amenities Block is an excellent example of how public toilets can be beautiful as well as functional.

“The beautiful design is highly responsive to its foreshore location,” she said. “The excellent design provides an aesthetically pleasing and safe public facility for the visitors to the foreshore of one of Melbourne’s finest urban beaches. And it uses rainwater harvesting for the toilet and basin use, solar electricity for lighting, and durable materials meaning low cost maintenance. This new facility has already been highly applauded within industry and by other local governments and so tonight it is only fitting that this work by Gregory Burgess Architects be recognised by the City of Port Phillip.”
