A rhythmic textured timber facade undulates through the landscape to create this collegiate building on the hospital campus. Two adaptable wings and an elongated atrium bring nature and people through the centre. Natural light, views through the building and interior planting create a comfortable, quality environment. A high level of design and construction team collaboration is evident in the coordination of services and the self-finished structure. The challenge in creating ambitious, high quality design for public buildings cannot be underestimated.
