Karratha Health Campus is a celebration of remote Western Australia, demonstrating sensitivity to the harsh natural climate while also drawing out the inherent vibrancy of the land. Selected materials and a rich colour palette reinforce the character of the region. The jury applauded the balance of design formality and informality, and the absence of planting. The design promotes better health, evokes a sense of comfort and provides connection to the land, making the campus far more than just a hospital.
