Complete Project | Siles Imaging Clinic Epworth Geelong

Completed in 2017, FMSA Architecture was engaged to design and document the interior fitout solution for a new Siles Health imaging clinic at the Epworth Geelong Hospital in Waurn Ponds.

The client required a custom clinic design in line with their corporate branding and values to support the specialised women’s health services that they provide including ultrasound, genetic counselling, fetal cardiology and pathology collection.

The design solution developed by our interior designers subtly utilises the client’s corporate branding and colours with restraint to create a calm, inviting and modern clinic environment for patients and staff.

Branding is strategically positioned throughout the clinic to be viewed from the public area of the Epworth Geelong Hospital to minimise the visual noise in the modest clinic.

The rich purple of the Siles Health branding is used to create contrast against the neutral colour palette of cool whites and greys. Rather than introduce a competing feature colour, texture is used in the form of wall panels and fabrics to distinguish functions and create a softness in the space.

We are excited to share our latest completed project for the Department of Environment, Water, Land & Planning (DELWP) – the DELWP Corryong Airbase.

“FMSA provided a high level of service throughout the duration of the project and ensured that the facility was accurately documented on time and built within budget expectations.
