Bendigo Hospital Project by Silver Thomas Hanley with Bates Smart and Oculus

Jury citation:

The new Bendigo Hospital invites us to rethink how health facilities can be designed to foster good health and wellbeing. It goes beyond convention by creating a precinct that engages with heritage and celebrates the cultural and ecological character of the region.

Careful attention has also been paid to sustainability. An integrated network of green roofs, balconies, courtyards and walkways allows both patients and visitors to benefit from a more inviting, high-quality public realm. Enhanced green spaces improve indoor comfort by reducing glare and the heat island effect. The use of solar photovoltaic and recycled water systems underpins the performance of the buildings and ensures that the precinct delivers both environmental and economic benefits to the local community.

Location: Bendig0 (VIC)
