Conrad Gargett has successfully been shortlisted for the Australian Interior Design Awards under the category of Public Design. Our recently completed St Stephen’s Hospital, Hervey Bay will go forward to the awards ceremony to be held on Friday 15 May. Click here for the full shortlist.
The St Stephen’s Hospital in Hervey Bay is Australia’s first fully integrated digital hospital. It’s soothing and sophisticated palette incorporates state of the art technologies that transforms the healthcare available to the Fraser Coast region.
Double height spaces, natural daylight and connection to the outside, contrasted with intimate spaces make the hospital feel welcoming and secure. The use of low elements in the larger void areas and the use of texture and pattern reinforces the domesticity of space and scale. The interior design lends itself to reducing stress and providing a more relaxing healing environment for patients, staff, and the greater community.
