An innovative design that replaces a Sandy Bay beach toilet block has won two awards at this year’s Tasmanian Architecture Awards.

The innovative toilet block design incorporates sound stage and performance space, made possible through a $685,000 Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Grant. 

Preston Lane Architects has received the Peter Willmott Award for Small Project Architecture as well as the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture for their work on the Sandy Bay Long Beach Amenities.

Lord Mayor Anna Reynolds is thrilled with the work, saying the architects have done an incredible job.

"We now have an open air sound stage and performance space with views out to the River Derwent built over the top of a re-imagined amenities block that has two ambulant toilets and external showers for beachgoers," Ms Reynolds said.
