Sandgate Senior Citizens Club
This building required an auditorium for 500 people and multi-function area for dining, recreation and administration facilities. The steeply sloping site overlooks Moreton Bay and is adjacent to the Sandgate Post Office. The building is elevated on concrete pylons to give a level floor and a gently ramped footpath leads to the shopping street. The roof form of the building expresses the acoustic functions of the auditorium. The planning provides unobstructed views to the bay. Furthermore the plan form of the building responds to the curve of the road. The shaded northern aspect maintains energy efficiency and captures sea breezes.
