The Wantirna Health Education Precinct is a collaborative partnership between Eastern Health and Deakin and Monash universities that aims to create a supportive and inspirational learning environment for medical, nursing and allied health professionals in Melbourne’s east.
Modscape worked closely with Eastern Health to deliver a new education facility that provides expanded teaching and training spaces to meet the growing requirements of Wantirna Health’s current operations.
With a combined module space of 418 sqm, the design comprises a 7-module building that connects to the hospital via a central corridor.
As the precinct is sited at the front entry of the hospital and connects internally with the existing training facilities, the façade of the new modular building utilises a series of Vitrabond boxes to create a heavily articulated, three-dimensional reinterpretation of the existing precast façade, which has been used as one wall of the corridor to visually consolidate the hospital and the precinct.
