Su­per clinic’s use of colour earns pres­ti­gious award

Pilbara News - - Property - Louise Alling­ham

Kar­ratha’s GP Su­per Clinic has re­ceived com­men­da­tion at the 2017 Du­lux Colour Awards.

At the na­tional awards, held at the Mel­bourne Mu­seum on Wed­nes­day, May 10, the Kar­ratha clinic was awarded in the com­mer­cial in­te­rior — pub­lic spa­ces cat­e­gory.

Win­ners were se­lected from al­most 300 en­tries from across the coun­try by a judg­ing panel of de­sign ex­perts.

In their com­ments, the judg­ing panel said the su­per clinic ex­erted a civic qual­ity and cre­ated a much-needed sense of per­ma­nence.

Judges said the colours used in the clinic es­tab­lished a con­nec­tion to the sur­round­ing nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment and cre­ated an at­mos­phere of warmth and safety.

“This is a beau­ti­ful sub­mis­sion with spe­cific com­men­da­tion to the at­ten­tion to duo-ton­ing,” they said.

“It’s no won­der the in­dige­nous peo­ple call this their ‘rain­bow home’.”

The su­per clinic has a colour scheme made up of blues, earthy greens, greys and warm yel­lows, with hints of turquoise se­lected by ar­chi­tec­ture firm CODA Stu­dio.

Du­lux colour plan­ning and com­mu­ni­ca­tion man­ager An­drea Lu­cena-Orr said this year’s fi­nal­ists pre­sented works that de­liv­ered an en­tirely un­re­strained skew on colour use and were in line with the theme for 2017, Bold, For­ward, Tilted.

“The Du­lux Colour Awards looks to un­cover the most in­ven­tive use of colour in built en­vi­ron­ments across Aus­tralia, New Zealand and be­yond,” she said.

“Each year we look for the sub­mis­sions that take cre­ativ­ity to new heights and this year’s award-win­ners broke free of all tra­di­tion to de­liver con­cepts that truly rep­re­sent the fu­ture of colour and de­sign.”

The su­per clinic was one of two WA projects to be recog­nised at the awards.

By­ford Sec­ondary Col­lege by Don­ald­son and Warn re­ceived com­men­da­tion in the com­mer­cial ex­te­rior cat­e­gory.
