Cockburn Health Complex
The concept is a response to the current site conditions, the surrounding community and the opportunities available from the site’s location i.e. as part of the regional hub. One of our design criterions is to create a flexible and malleable building that can adapt to the changing needs of the community and businesses.
The intention of the form is to take advantage of this prominent corner site to create both an entry statement into the suburb of Success via Wentworth Parade and to put in place an iconic corner structure that will provide health services for the community that will also promote and project an image of contemporary healthy living/lifestyle in the City of Cockburn.
The curvature of the façade draws attention to the building, creates a welcoming gesture into the site and also provides a ‘billboard’ element that is visible to traffic travelling from either end of Beeliar Drive. We envisage that in the evenings, activities inside the building that are seen from the street will serve as promotion both for the health complex and for healthy living within the community.
