A highly collaborative integrated working environment that respects patients’ needs for calm and tranquility.
The award-winning Centre delivers world-class cancer care for patients in regional areas, as well as research, education and community services.
Its design resolves the need for a highly collaborative integrated working environment in a large complex building, with the contrasting need for tranquil deinstitutionalised space for employees and patients alike. Throughout the centre, there is a focus on natural light and contact with the outdoors.
Staff are interconnected throughout the centre, much like the public are but on the reverse side of each of the floorplates. A separate staff stair runs centrally up the building connecting each of the floor levels to each other and to the shared staff space on the mid level of the building.
Open staff spaces and shared meeting rooms running throughout the facility create a connected integrated work environment rather than separating them into their different departments, enabling and encouraging collaboration.
Shared staff spaces and common meeting and education facilities further build upon this theme.
Training and conference facilities can flex up or down in size to accommodate a variety of group sizes and uses.
