Crystal Brook Park Amenities

Location: Emerald, Victoria
Client: Parks Victoria
Photographer: Martin Saunders Photography

Parks Victoria commissioned the replacement of outdated toilet facilities serving the popular Crystal Brook picnic area at the Cardinia Reservoir Park in Melbourne’s East.

The building nestles into the slope at the edge of the large open park. The colours of the building respond to the bluestone ballast walls of the nearby reservoir. The planning responds to the cultural sensitivities of a diverse range of user groups. The remoteness of the site required particular resolution of services to the building location, including a dispersal septic system and
rainwater harvesting.
