Perth Children’s Hospital, Perth, Australia

Client: Western Australian State Government

Architect: Cox Howlett & Bailey Woodland, JCY, Billard Leece Partnership and HKS Inc

Replacing the existing Princess Margaret Hospital, the new facility is located on the QEII Medical Centre health precinct in Nedlands, Perth. The $1.2 billion Perth Children’s Hospital will provide the best possible clinical care for future generations in Western Australia and will be the base for continuing WA’s outstanding paediatric research with the co-location of the Integrated Research and Education Facilities, including the Telethon Kids Institute.

The hospital has almost 300 inpatient beds and provides tertiary-level health services and key secondary health services, acute treatment and diagnostics. The building features a Northern Winter Garden, a double skin active facade, a hydrotherapy pool, an auditorium, a large central atrium, a helipad, cinema and recreation facilities (indoor and outdoor) including the Starlight Foundation, and significant additional back of house support and office accommodation.

NDYLIGHT worked as part of the NDY Perth team to deliver this very successful project.
