Natural Themes

Set in a peaceful garden, the existing green spaces inspired the centre’s design, which draws upon natural themes that engage the outdoors. Arranged over a single storey, a natural timber structure focuses around a central spine with the roof rising in the centre to create a mezzanine level illuminated with natural light.

Daylit workspace and integrated lighting

A Home from Home

The centre is a place to relax, seek solace and support. The lighting design responds to this and delivers a low level of warm comfortable light utilising furniture integrated lighting elements and minimal styling. The controls are simple with just ‘overcast’, ‘sunny’ and ‘off’ push button options.
