Bay Pavilions Arts + Aquatic is a unique community facility located in Batemans Bay on the picturesque south coast of NSW. The building has been inspired by the stunning natural landscape and features an organic design language that makes extensive use of sustainably sourced timber.
Bay Pavilions comprises two Pavilions connected via a shared foyer Link. The Arts Pavilion includes a 350 seat theatre, arts workshops and community meeting rooms. The Aquatic Pavilion includes an indoor aquatic centre with playful waterslide tower, gym and program rooms.
The central foyer Link has been carefully designed to allow the activities and events associated with the arts, leisure, health and recreation to be visible and coalesce. It creates a vibrant, dynamic meeting place that invites a broad cross section of the community to engage and participate. Bay Pavilions represents an innovative example of what inclusive and holistic community facilities can be.
