– DESIGN FOR RENOVATION AND EXTENSION –

DATE: 2014

THE BRIEF:

The people of Dhauwurd-Wurrung approached Select Architects to enable a renovation and extension of the existing Health and Wellbeing Centre to expand facilities and provide state-of-the-art health care for the local Portland community.

OUR APPROACH:

The Dhauwurd-Wurrung Elderly and Community Health Service (DWECH) had outgrown its original facilities which led to a new contemporary design for a renovation and addition to the existing building which sits on a 7732m² site area.

The innovative design involved new cladding of natural timber panels, the addition of slot windows and striking colourful, authentic Indigenous art panels.

RESULTS:

The additions and renovations were designed with modern-day health issues in mind. The service will provide general practice medical care, specialist consulting and social services.
