Sydney-based architectural studio Alexander &CO. was commissioned to renovate and expand the Burleigh Pavilion on Australia’s Gold Coast.
Conceived as a quintessential Australian beach pavilion structure the Burleigh Pavilion is the refurbishment and partial construction of the iconic ocean facing building and swimming pool at Burleigh Heads. Across 1200 sq m, the venue is divided into three spaces: ‘The Pavilion’, ‘Beach Bar’ and ‘The Tropic’ restaurant. Robust, sun-drenched and faded it is the next genesis in the story of Burleigh Heads.
Creatively the client wanted the project to evoke memories of his childhood spent holidaying in Burleigh Heads; a 70’s Gold Coast beach nostalgia.
