- Congratulations to JCY Architects and Urban Designers, Cox Architecture, and Billard Leece Partnership with HKS Inc. for their outstanding success at the recent AIA 2019 WA Architecture Awards. Impressively, they won awards in three categories for the Perth Children’s Hospital project: Public Architecture, Interior Architecture and Sustainable Architecture, and also the top honour, the George Temple Pool Award.
- To quote from the AIA WA Architecture Awards 2019 Booklet “The design team have created an exceptional response engaging all users of this complex new medical facility: children, parents, specialist consultants and medical support staff – a people first, high quality and captivating environment, changing our perception of what a hospital can be”.
“The clever use of colour and form, art, greenery, light and a range of age appropriate play sculptures creates an atmosphere of positivity and hope. The atrium design is in itself a work of art: a spectacular space using sculptural forms to delight all those who enter with carefully articulated paths of colour guiding way-finding to a complex and carefully coordinated arrangement of specialist treatment areas.”
“Medical equipment is diminished in scale through skilled use of a colour palette referencing the colours of spring in adjacent Kings Park. The elongated East-West axis of the building form has been carefully mitigated with a double skin active facade improving air quality and thermal performance, contributing to the high quality social and environmental hospital for children.”
“Extensive research and consultation with a wide range of medical and administrative staff has ensured that this complex and challenging BIM enhanced project includes a high level of art and functionality in addition to an amazing’ wonderland’ for children in need of specialist care – an inspired creation.”
