Professional Offices

Scott Street, Cairns

 

Details:

JB was commissioned to design an affordable, practical solution for a modern engineering/surveying consultancy on a block of land 20 metres x 20 metres (400m²).

The completed design easily fits into the streetscape, an area that also accommodates an eclectic mix of houses converted into offices, neighbouring industrial sheds.

The professional design takes advantage of natural light and ventilation to the South-Eastern and Northern approaches.

Incorporating a modern, open stairwell, gives the feeling of space and movement.

Project

Dementia Care / Respite Facility

McLeod Street, Cairns

 

Details:

JBD designed a two-stage project. The design brief was to convert an office (originally a 2-storey Queenslander residence) into a specialty dementia care / respite facility.

Incorporated into the design is a separate, secure administration area for the business.

Security was of paramount concern and JB achieved a high-level of security for both patients and staff whilst providing functionality, in an urban environment.

These security design elements were integrated into the overall project plan in such a manner that JB was able to present a professional/friendly facility, whilst avoiding the appearance and feel of an ‘open-air security complex’.

The existing Queenslander was adapted, and re-designed to best suit the client’s brief, whilst blending in with the character of the street. From the public access street, the general appearance of the original dwelling is retained.

JB designed the approach to the Dementia Care and Respite Facility to immediately welcome all visitors whilst at the same time providing a safe and secure environment.
