Consulting Rooms

An established local gynaecologist and his wife, the office manager, purchased a property to build a purpose designed medical facility for their practice. The brief included a requirement that separate commercial space be provided to enhance the viability of the development.

Site

Church Street, Moruya, NSW

The Requirements

The project presented the challenge of creating modern consulting rooms promoting a high level of professional care however, the appearance of the building needed to sit comfortably in the historic context of the town. There was also the problem of a raised floor level to avoid flooding that frustrated the obligation to provide wheelchair access.

The Solution / Outcomes

The solution to the design was a simple building footprint under a gabled roof with a verandah to the street. A ramp facilitated easy disabled access from the car park. Full height glazing to the entry ensured that the reception/waiting area was light-filled, and accessible. The domestic scale of the building provides a comfortable environment for soon-to-be mothers.
