A material fit for purpose
Over 50km of Tongue & Groove Cladding was produced for Dandenong Mental Health, all in Blackbutt Timber. Blackbutt was chosen for its durability, being a class 1 timber, which makes it perfect for minimising maintenance on external areas.
The timber cladding also allows the project to blend into its suburban surrounds, rather than disturbing the domestic environment.
“The good thing about the timber was that it could also blend in with the domestic character of the buildings around it, so it met the planning outcome of fitting this building into its domestic environment, making the people within the building feel good, and to extend architecture’s capacity to create environments that are good for people.”
“If you put someone into a concrete box and asked them how they were feeling – or measured how they were feeling – and then put them into a garden courtyard with timber, plants and trees you’d get a completely different response.”
