Client Name: Central Gippsland Health Service - Sale
Builder: CAD Build – (Formerly CM & HM Banks)
As part of ongoing capital works at the hospital is the provision of a new operating theatre and associated support areas. The facility is located on the roof space of the existing building designed in 1972 by the Architect – the late Stuart Ashton who was responsible for many of the buildings in Gippsland since the 1950’s. The design‘s intention is to complement the existing building forms and uses the language of the long slot windows and metal façade and reinterprets them. A custom made folded metal façade sites atop the existing brickwork, broken by the negative space of the slot windows. The façade changes appearance during the day with the varying shadows and light.
