Design Features

The single-storey daycare and respite centre is designed around the concept of a pinwheel, allowing users of the facility to wander from room to room very easily. All of the spaces within the building are interlinked, so that patients will always be able to make their way back to the social areas. “It’s a social, outgoing building, designed to ensure that no one will feel alone”, explains the architect
