From the architect. This project challenges the view that clinical interiors need to be limited in colour or texture.

Using a limited achromatic palette of external materials, the perception of a vibrant visceral-like interior is heightened in this integrated clinical teaching, training and research centre in Geelong, Australia.

The project is part of the redevelopment of the Geelong Hospital site, providing facilities for Deakin University Medical School, and Barwon Health Services’ teaching, training and medical research facility.

Rising three levels above a carpark, the building rests on a brick plinth, masking the carpark behind, and recalls the bris-soleil of the modern to give life to its street elevation.

I found this pretty cool... The overall complexity of the project seems rigorously controlled and the result is very equilibrated, everything sort of being at its right, exact place...

I have a laser printer which look like similar to this building.

The elevation reflects calmness and cleanness that is essential for this kind of buildings .and the interior reflects the Stimulus that plays important role in motivating the trainees. The building is divided into 2 sections yet they are uniformed by a very impressive colors and units.

normally if u hear the term health center or research center u imagine it white :) and in most cases it is, but i like the use of interior colors that will certainly help people relax.
