BMD Group and BMD Northcliffe Surf Club began their staged refurbishment works in 2018, aiming to provide a well-loved community club with a simple refresh prior to further substantial works.
With a tight budget, Cottee Parker Architect’s scope was to resolve queuing issues in the restaurant, provide an undercover and spacious balcony area, and give the club a cost-effective facelift moving into the new year.
The amazing beachfront location and the club’s established and passionate club members had it perks and challenges.
The proposed interior fitout had to be suitable for a high-traffic, coastal location, provide more space efficiency and stay true to the essence of the club and its history.
A key success of the refurbishment is the outdoor balcony extension. The roof structure impeccably blends with the existing building and invites patrons in with it’s high ceilings, open air feel and beachfront view.
