The Fiona Stanley Hospital is the largest health project ever undertaken by the Western Australia State Government and is one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in Australia. It’s design incorporates contemporary health as well as evidence based design principles and includes many ecologically sustainable design practises.
Proximity to green space featured prominently in their holistic approach to patient recovery, catered for within the design, by providing patients and staff easy access to nature. In the two rooftop gardens, X-TEND tensile mesh panels where installed to provide discreet fall protection barriers, which double as vertical gardens and green facades.
These load-rated tensile mesh panels are brilliantly transparent allowing the plants to float seemingly unsupported, towards the sky when viewed from a distance.
