The new Medical Centre for Gerringong Medical Practice combined the complexities of a large medical facility with the detailed requirements of a residential development. An optimal and functional floor l ayout was required to achieve the fine balance between a comfortable, intimate ambiance with the clinical environment required for infection control and efficiency.
The Solution / Outcome
Consideration of occupants’ health and wellbeing was underpinned by the philosophy of Biophilic Design. This seeks to reinforce connections to natural patterns and systems within the built environment in order to optimise healing and wellbeing of both patients and staff.
The Medical Practice’s vision resonated with the culture of Edmiston Jones. Strongly connecting to the environment, the community and embracing a collaborative approach while mentoring the next generation of professionals were the key drivers for the design process.
