A humble, homely abode in a leafy green setting, the Maternal & Child Health Centre is shaped by its quiet, quaint surroundings. Blending into the background, whilst remaining central to the parklands.

A mother’s initial relationship with her child manifests through touch and tactility – the first kick, a comforting hug, a helping hand, a leading influence.

We hope to realise these notions within the context of the Health Centre. How might we create a natural, warm and soothing environment in the same way a mother does for her child? The Zen-inspired design is seamless and flowing, encouraging a worry-free mentality when it comes to an exciting, yet unknown future. Rather, finding peace and drawing inspiration from things that are not yet fixed.

Ephemeral, tranquil moments of reassurance. The materiality is delicate and simple, an honesty that captures the relationships nurtured within this centre.
