Greenslopes Specialist Medical Consult Suite

Alexandra Buchanan Architecture as Architects

The Greenslopes Specialist Medical Consult Suite is a high end fit out of an Orthopeadic Specialist Consult Suite in Brisbane's Greenslopes Private Hospital.

 

What was the brief?

The clients brief was to create a softer more textural experience for their patients with a "residential" aesthetic. Situated at the top of the building with stunning views to the surrounding hilltops the clients wanted to ensure a light filled, bright and welcoming space.

 

What were the key challenges?

The building is surrounded by large expansive views to surrounding views but a typical consult arrangement would have meant that all views were the reserve of the consultants offices at the expense of the waiting areas and meeting space. The client wanted to ensure that there was a wow factor on entry and that the entire suite was washed in natural light and benefitted from the view.

 

What were the solutions?

Clever planning and detailed engagement in the briefing of each space; how it is and could be used most effectively and what space it needed allowed us to challenge the status quo, free up the plan and dissolve the hard edges of private consult rooms - particularly at the suites edges where a central waiting area became the hub around which everything else circulates.

 

Who are the clients and what's interesting about them?

Our highly engaged, design conscious client duo are both highly regarded in their fields as an anaesthetist & pain specialist and her husband specialist Orthopaedic Shoulder surgeon.
