interior Architecture

Eternal Women’s Health is an innovative new practice providing multi-disciplinary healthcare for women at all stages of life. Core Collective Architects were tasked with designing a fit-out that reflects the practice’s holistic philosophy, with all areas of the facility feeling homely, warm and inviting, and pointedly ‘non-clinical’.
The practice is a thoughtfully conceived and carefully crafted interior, designed in close collaboration with the client and builder. The fit-out is fresh, relaxing and filled with natural light. It features high ceilings and large windows with views of kunanyi and the city. The interior material palette is homely and elegant, with Tasmanian timbers used extensively and a lighting scheme that is ambient and warm. In the client’s words: ‘We have warm and welcoming spaces that calm emotions and inspire.’

Client perspective:
How does the design benefit the way you live/work/play/operate/educate/other?

“We envisaged a space that was safe and comforting and that facilitated inclusion of everyone that might be involved in the woman’s health care journey. The Core Collective design embedded the essential elements of a medical practice without making the space overly clinical. The floor plan allows easy flow of daily tasks, ensures privacy and confidentiality, while enabling us to provide care in a nurturing environment. We have warm and welcoming spaces that calm emotions and inspire sharing, comfortable work and relaxation areas that facilitate productivity, and views of the mountain and city skyline that lets the sunshine in!”
