The architectural form provides patient privacy while maximising natural light and views of the adjacent Karrawirra Parri / River Torrens. The palette of interior finishes; natural materials, patterning and colour reflect the river aspect and bring warmth and comfort to occupants.

Undercroft parking creates ease of access with a sheltered entrance to the clinic. The overall effect is an enhanced space of calm tranquillity.
