LIFECUARD TOWER
WOODEND BEACH
‘THE CHAIR’
Rollover to enlarge images


Woodend Beach is patrolled by professional Lifeguards over summer for the 6 weeks of the primary school holidays.

For the remainder of the year the tower is unused and has been designed to resemble a large deck chair a piece of oversized beach furniture that acts as a piece of sculpture in the landscape.

The 'Chair' provides panoramic views up and down Woodend Beach while providing shelter and a base for the 3 lifeguards on patrol.

The tower is accessed via a ladder that the lifeguards collect from the neighbouring camping ground each morning and carry over the sand dunes.

The yellow and red colour stripped colour scheme identifies it as a lifeguard facility that contrasts with the often grey environment it sits in.
