One of our own a panelist for an important industry issue event
SPH was delighted to see our Health and Aged Care Specialist and Director, Ali Devellerez, invited onto the panel of the Future Built Environment Opportunities Breakfast on the 12th April. The focus was on mental health and the built environment.
The breakfast, held on the 12th of April, was co-hosted by Master Builders, Engineers Australia, Consult Australia, the Australian Institute of Building, and the Australian Institute of Architects. Ali was joined by other professionals in their respective fields to discuss mental health in the built environment – the impact of drugs & alcohol. This is a very important issue facing not only the construction industry but society in general.
Narrogin Cottage Homes project has officially opened
We’re proud to announce this purpose-built project for people living with dementia, named the ‘Maxwell Wing’ is now operational.
The essence of the Narrogin Cottage Homes project was to create a therapeutic environment that would nurture, stimulate and support residents with dementia.
Through a collaborative design process, SPH architecture + interiors was able to draw on the scientific knowledge and first-hand experience of health professionals, to ensure a best-practice design centered around the functional needs and aspirations of residents, families and support staff.
The design provides spaces for communal activities, whilst offering private areas for retreat and relaxation enabling residents to live with dignity and promote independence in a discretely secure environment.
SPH architecture + interiors was engaged to provide full service architectural services for the 17 bed project including the design, documentation and contract administration of the project. The project has been selected to be presented at the International Dementia Conference in Sydney this June and has also made the shortlist for the International INDE Awards for excellence in wellness space design.
