Midin Clinic

Role: Principal Architect

Builder: Hutchinson Builders

Client: Mulungu Aboriginal Corporation Primary Health Care Service

From conception to completion the architectural and design team were able to transfer cultural ideas from local traditional owners and elders into the design for this building. As an organisation that caters for First Nations people this was important both to the community and Mulungu staff. The Mulungu Board's aim to set a high standard and to make people feel welcome and safe was achieved. Extended sight lines allow people to not feel being ‘boxed’ in while waiting. The design team collaborated with local First Nations people in the design showing great respect for the area that Midin Clinic services.

Conceptual Design Phase

The conceptual design celebrates the iconic fish trap well known to indigenous peoples of the region. The fish trap seemed an obvious response to the idea of catching peoples attention, especially given its location across the street from the Cairns Aquarium. Ideas included a mural wall that could feature different artists on a regular basis.
