The Seaside Museum at Bribie Island provides a unique recreational and education hub for the local community and tourists. Perfectly situated, the building is nestled amongst shady trees with frontages to the beach. The open plan, natural-lit space caters for exhibits, functions and screenings of short films in its micro-cinema.

The museum’s design is subtle yet striking: a white diagonal bulkhead is positioned for sweeping views across the sea, beach and park, which cleverly blends with hardwood timber floors, high and low windows, and timber slats to create a sense of transparency and connection to the site. The black interior ceiling creates a sense of height and openness, with contrasting white walls, feature lighting, and floating zones to define functions and spaces.
