After Hurricane Sandy devastated many beautiful New York beaches, ‘Garrison Architects’ was recruited to help rebuild 37 new, stronger, storm-resistant and modern lifeguard stations to restore Midland Beach, Coney Island and Rockaway Beach in time for Summer.

These innovative lifeguard stations surpass all storm surge requirements and guarantee to hold up to any type of weather. The stations are steel-made cabins roughly 15-feet wide by 57 or 47-feet long and 12-feet high that stand modern and elegant alongside the rugged tan beach sand and the cool blue water.

Each contains several offices, public restrooms and compartments for the lifeguards to sit and keep and eye on the beach. Adding to the modern feel, each station has built-in skylights, glass ceilings, glass tiling, a natural ventilation system and runs off of solar panels. While the current images are mock ups, the sheer beauty of the stations will be enough to restore these NYC beaches back to their former glory days.
