We are thrilled with the news that our Superclinic project in Karratha has received a commendation at last night’s Dulux Colour Awards! This facility provides allied health services for the town’s Indigenous population, fly-in-fly-out workers and families living remotely.
We used colour to strengthen the building’s connection with the surrounding landscape and to create an atmosphere of warmth and safety. Externally, the dramatic form of the hills is expressed in the fascia and decorative treatment of the tilt-up concrete facade. Internally, colour-blocking is used to temper the medical experience and act as an important wayfinding tool once inside the building.
This project provides an important piece of amenity for the community, which the local Indigenous people now refer to as their ‘Rainbow Home!’
This award caps of a successful week for the Superclinic. On Saturday, at a ceremony in Broome, the project received three MBA Bankwest Building Excellence Awards in the following categories: best commercial industrial building $6.5m – $20m; innovative use of building materials; and, excellence in recycling.
