Fiona Stanley Hospital Design Collaboration celebrates first completed building in major scheme

The Fiona Stanley Hospital Design Collaboration (comprising design firms Hames Sharley, HASSELL and Silver Thomas Hanley) is responsible for delivering urban design, architecture, health planning, landscape architecture and interior design for the AU$2bn Fiona Stanley Hospital at Murdoch. It will be the major tertiary hospital in the south metropolitan region providing 783 beds and 24-hour acute care together with teaching, research, medical and surgical services.

The Administration Building opened its doors last month marking it as the first of eight buildings at Fiona Stanley Hospital to reach practical completion. The building’s curvilinear form responds to both the inherent curved street address and the interface with the hospital’s main central landscaped courtyard and adjacent curved facades. Comprising three levels of open plan office space and meeting room facilities, the building will accommodate the hospital’s administrative service requirements.

High performance double glazing with frit patterning, external vertical sunshading fins and opaque glazing in combination provides optimal work zones with reduced glare and overall thermal performance, whilst also creating a distinctive patterned facade experienced from both outside and in. Internal office planning situates the primary circulation corridors against the eastern facade achieving separation of work zones from facade heat load and allows occupants to visually interact with the hospital’s landscaped courtyards. Office floor plate design allows natural day light penetration to approximately 85% of the floor area.
