Health Campus

The Port Hedland Health Campus is a project which embodies the cultural identity of the place, its people and its climate

The Hedland Health Campus goes beyond the successful delivery of health services. Located on a green field site in South Hedland, the project represented an opportunity to create a public building which reflected the importance of the Pilbara region to the state of Western Australia, and Australia as a nation.

The architecture of the Hedland Health Campus responds fully to its context both as part of an urban centre and also as a part of the Pilbara region. It is essentially a collection of simple well-mannered sheds on low podiums sheltered by generous pergola structures. This open and welcoming architecture engenders a sense of community for the people that work at the hospital, its patients and visitors.
