Ballarat Community Health Primary Care Centre
| DesignInc
The value of early interactive design processes with
client and stakeholders is well demonstrated at the
Ballarat Community Health Primary Care Centre,
resulting in a rich and lively response to the diversity of
community and health needs.
While the saw tooth roof form provides an identifiable
silhouette to the local roads, its primary strategy is to
maximise daylight and interior amenity. Beneath these
roofs, simple and clear internal spatial organisation is
formed by a series of landscaped ‘streets’ and linked to
a central day lit atrium.
Enriched with natural timbers, robust steel elements
and glazed bricks these indoor-outdoor spaces provide
a lively and functional interior environment linking a
variety of private and communal spaces. The constant
links to interior gardens and voids combined with open
stairs encourage positive community engagement. This
combined with a more active and interactive workplace
increases the overall wellbeing of all that engage with
the Centre.
