The Hobart Cardiology and Medical Specialists vision was to provide high quality medical suites and to create a centre of excellence and a workplace of choice that included neurology and endocrinology medical care, and in-house dietitian services.
The interior design is calm, relaxing, and secure, reflecting a quiet reassurance about the professionalism, skill, and care of the staff.
The palette of materials has been influenced by the Japanese heritage of the owner, using raw and natural materials, contrasting textures and colours, and enhanced by the careful selection and placement of lighting.
The internal corridor circulation is designed as a ‘street’ connecting the ad hoc geometry of the consulting and treatment rooms generated by the irregular shape of the tenancy area. Patients cross doorway ‘thresholds’ to pass from the public spaces into the private and personal assessment and treatment areas.
