The hospital presents a strong and unique presence responding to the characteristics and the vernacular of the region, creating a welcoming environment and a distinct sense of place.

The design has been considered holistically, developing the form and massing as a direct expression of the function of the facilities while integrating these into a whole campus development.

The three primary elements of the campus; the diagnostic and treatment bar, the inpatient pavilions and the women’s and children’s hospital are individually expressed to create a vibrant but ordered composition.

The high quality palette of materials is designed to provide a richness of texture across the three components and convey the qualities of longevity, solidity and timelessness in a modern and contemporary vernacular.
