category: health

project name: Headspace & Lighthouse

location: Grafton Strret, Cairns CBD

size: 850sqm

completed: February 2012

Far North Queensland Rural Division of General Practice has the charter to deliver the new headspace program, Australia’s national youth mental health foundation, to the Far North.

Our role began with the evaluation of several tenancy alternatives to assist with the leasing process, with this CBD site chosen as being both convenient to clients and the best fit for purpose.

Occupying the first floor of Grafton House in the CBD, 850sqm of new office space was developed for the combined facilities of youth oriented psychiatric care, general practice and administration services.

The space supports two separate programs and regional support staff.

Headspace has a clear youth oriented brand that overlays this professional service delivery environment. Whilst ensuring the fitout demands were met, we were able to inject a little fun with the design ingredients.

The premises also houses the team delivering crucial suicide prevention services. Previously operating under a rather anonymous acronym, Myriad created a new brand identity for the service – the Lighthouse. The Lighthouse team share the space and administration facilities in delivering their vital service to the Cairns community.
