Monash Childrens Hospital
As one of the largest dedicated children’s hospitals in Australia, Monash Children’s Hospital is specifically designed to deliver services in a child and family-friendly manner. It represents a significant expansion of paediatric health services in Victoria.
Located in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, and positioned adjacent to the wellestablished Monash Medical Centre, the facility needed to stand out from the surrounding environment. It was essential to provide a welcoming and caring feel for its young patients. Designed by STH Architects, the facility responds to these requirements with bold colours offset by timber accents and features joyful sculptural elements.
Working with the Victorian Health team, we developed a wayfinding strategy which relates and appeals to a younger demographic, leveraging the playful architectural style developed by STH. The design presents a friendly, clean aesthetic, with accents of colour and engaging environmental graphics.
