Mornington Centre BLP

Mornington Centre wins Intergrain Timber Vision Award

The Mornington Centre Sub Acute Project, masterplanned, designed and delivered by BLP, won the Commercial Exterior Category for the innovative use of white cypress timber on the building’s façade, which alludes more to a coastal shack than an institutionalised care centre for dementia patients.

The judges merited this “stylish institutional project” with the Commercial Exterior Award, saying it is a “sophisticated design with great texture and layers of detailing that enhance use of timber”. Timber has been used cleverly, through recessed windows and thoughtful cladding, to make the centre less like an institution and more welcoming in form.
