The Joan Kirner Hospital project features a series of circular and semi-circular shade structures that were developed as part of a redevelopment of the hospital. The project was funded by the Victoria State Government to improve the facilities at the children’s hospital.
The external shade canopies feature custom architectural steel in full circular and semi-circular shapes, both free-standing and as awnings on door entries. We were contracted for the design and construction of the architectural shade structures at the Joan Kirner Hospital.
The design includes both free-standing shade structures, architectural external shades (adorned over doorways) and aluminium screens. The structures are considered to be an art/feature application due to the unique geometry of the steel and the exceptional quality of the final product. The architectural steelwork features a 2 coat paint system utilising Dulux Night Sky.
