Being the first mental health facility of its kind in Australia, the Young Adults Private Mental Health Unit promotes a non-threatening and open environment with the aim to reducing the need for this age group being admitted into adult facilities.

 

Unseen in Australia, this is the first health unit to provide a centre that caters specifically for private mental health patients from 16 to 30 years of age. Woods Bagot's intention was to create calm surroundings, or a 'home away from home' through a series of spaces for 'hang out' interaction, cocoon like 'chill-out' areas and multi-functional areas used to encourage the production of art and music, meditation or dance, or simply relaxation.

 

Light and nature play an important part within the interior, promoting natural light to penetrate into the depths of the building while maximising views over the city. Pieces such as the Zoe by Verzelloni, and Catifa Chair by Arper allowed for bursts of vibrant colour which in turn promotes a bright, natural feeling throughout the facility.
