Best Healthcare Building

Following careful analysis and discussion, STW proposed what was at the time viewed as a radical solution, which brought both types of accommodation together, offering both a property solution and an architectural dynamic to resolving the issues.
The design consists of two gently curved buildings, the smaller nursing home focusing inwards on a sheltered south facing garden, while the larger accommodation building opens outwards to overlook the magnificent garden and grounds of the adjoining Gonzaga College. The opposing curves creates a dialectic which both unites and divides the buildings, giving them individuality and commonality.
