A restorative garden for major health care provider Barwon Health. The McKellar Centre at Geelong provides a range of rehabilitation services, residential aged care and palliative care. Buildings at the heart of the complex were demolished to better connect the hospital community and provide a diverse space for social events, exercise, rehabilitation or quiet reflection.
Falinc worked with Outline Landscape Architects to produce a series of contemporary outdoor bench seating. Constructed as repeating units in blackbutt timber with raw galvanised steel arms, the benches are set onto concrete blocks and positioned around the amphitheatre, stage area and gardens. Stainless steel handrails were manufactured by Falinc and positioned alongside stairs and ramps to aid the rehabilitative purpose of the facility in developing mobility and access training.
