The Gold Coast University Hospital Carpark West consists of twin carpark structures (1,800 spaces) sited north-west of the main hospital complex and directly opposite the Ward Block West (WBW).

The twin structures are orientated with their long axes running east-west, creating a backdrop for the public interface of WBW with similar stratification in horizontal planes of ground, main carpark texture and floating roof plane. The façades are articulated vertically into proportioned sections to manage the scale of the building.

The immediate address of the carpark to the hospital’s WBW is controlled by weaving commercial activity zones into the façade. This design strategy ensures minimal ‘light spill’ from the carpark into the view lines of patients, while also controlling the address to the internal hospital road. Commercial façades complement the extruded ‘box’ language of the hospital’s clinical support buildings.
