Kindred Midwifery, Obstetrics & Gynaecology is a rare project that allows us as architects and designers to explore every element of the brief and custom tailor the design outcomes to influence the interactions, feelings and approach of the practice. Situated in a commercial character building in East Brisbane, with charming stained glass, raking ceilings and clerestory windows it was critical that the new fit-out not only respected but enhanced the original features of the building.
The design response was to create a space that enhanced the natural light inside the building and create an open and approachable feel, a place where patients could drop in outside of appointments to weigh their baby or meet with midwives. A place that was relaxing and reassuring reflecting the service offered by the Kindred team.
DesignFolk Objects crafted many of the custom furniture pieces themselves creating a special warmth and care that only custom design can offer.
