UQ Rural Clinical School

UQ Rural Clinical School, Toowoomaba UQ Rural Clinical School, Toowoomaba

The brief was to design and deliver a building to house the administration and training facilities for the UQ School of Medicine’s Rural Clinical Division.

The school aims to promote rural practice by providing positive clinical education and training experiences for medical students in rural areas. Arkhefield’s vision was to offer an alternative to the traditional “blood and bandage” clinical interiors associated with the medical training facilities.

The building is conceived as a concrete and steel portal frame, oriented to the south to maximise reflected daylight and address the adjacent parklands. The building creates a street-side edge to the sprawling Toowoomba campus. Clean lines and minimal detailing are in keeping with the functional program of the planning. The highly contemporary architecture and interior design deliver a warm, tactile and inspirational environment within which to learn.
