A challenging site and public opposition overcome to produce design leader for the community!
To create a contemporary new medical facility that will be a design leader for the future.
Strong council and neighbour pushback due to the contemporary commercial aesthetic and overall two storey size of development.
Two services easements running through the site meant certain design considerations.
Sites close proximity to river meant a Cultural Heritage Management Plan had to be undertaken to ensure no aboriginal artifacts on site.
Through clever choice of materials and setbacks, contemporary design was approved and council commended the effort in achieving the final design result.
Due to a client request to have all consulting rooms facing outwards, a central waiting room was required. Natural light was achieved to this crucial space through the introduction of a northern facing highlight window running the length of the space.
