Preston Lane: Mt St Vincent
Preston Lane have just opened the doors on a new building for UTAS in Ulverstone. The Dementia study facility’s design is centred around two key spaces, both featuring large windows set within heavy steel frames that, from the inside provide a picture-frame to the view. The underlying concept is that patients visiting from the neighbouring aged care facility can enjoy a day out and find comfort in the uninterrupted view out across the valley below. The building is also designed with warm, familiar materials such as brown brick and Spotted Gum hardwood, which create a warm, homely and inviting atmosphere to the building’s interior.
