Rethinking clinical spaces
BSA designed these highly-equipped laboratories for the Faculty of Nursing Midwifery and Health at the University of Technology, Sydney. They included editing suites, simulated hospital environments, medical gases, camera capture and integrated audio-visual teaching media. Student breakout spaces and seminar rooms were also required to be provided within the faculty for group work and self-directed learning.
Burtenshaw Scoufis’ experience with the design of a significant number of educational facilities was paramount in the resolution of a successful outcome for this exceptional medical teaching facility. Our considerable knowledge of both formal and informal teaching environments enabled us to respond creatively and provide for the range of learning styles described in their detailed brief.
The facilities involved were designed to provide a more informal and interactive environment for what had previously been a clinical facility. BSA selected and integrated unconventional materials, colours and furniture to create a modern and innovative nursing and health teaching facility.
