MENTAL HEALTH CENTRE

Victoria St, Chatswood

The brief was to provide a fresh approach to a mental health hospital/facility. The corner site presented numerous constraints which we were able to turn into opportunities including narrow allotment which was responded with a unique building form. We were able to accommodate twenty beds spread over three levels of the building with basement car parking. The colour of the shimmering fa├žade would change throughout the day depending on reflection from the sun lifting the spirits of users and the community.
