The design for this state-of-the art clinic successfully combines the high-tech requirements of a renal clinic with materials, images and scale that are familiar to the predominantly indigenous clientele. The provision of a comfortable area for patients who spend many hours in the facility each week were important design factors. Orientation, screening and landscaping ensure the renal unit, including veranda spaces and connecting links, are protected from the harsh climate.
