Moonlight State Beach Marine Safety Center (Phase 2)

The design of this two story lifeguard station is carefully crafted to enhance lifeguard operations, provide public accommodations and withstand its coastal environment. Its sweeping second floor walls and roof lines recall rescue boats and ocean wave while also allowing ample daylight to enter the facility. Operationally, the building acts as a “tool box” for lifeguards, with every space serving multiple functions and designed to minimize wasted space. Keeping the station size to a minimum resulted in more beach area left for public use.
