MODE was engaged to design the fitout for the new location of The Kidman Centre UTS within the Prince of Wales Hospital, Randwick.
Client: University of Technology Sydney
Location: Randwick, NSW
The new works included 11 offices/clinics, 2 multipurpose rooms for staff and students/interns, flexible meeting rooms, reception area, waiting area, storage rooms and amenities within 470m2. MODE’s intent was to design an enriched, traditionally
non-clinical, welcoming space for psychologists to deliver preventative mental health workshops, and evidence-based treatment and research clinics for young people aged 5 to 25, and their families. Natural features, including blonde timber wall cladding and natural light to corridors diffused by frosted glass, create a softened atmosphere. Designed with flexible furnishings allow the rooms to be arranged to meet various purposes while colourful fabrics used for soft furnishings and upholstery bring an element of the natural environment into the space, incorporating biophilic design within the space.
