This world class healthcare facility in Johannesburg delivers services to more than 550,000 people. The Westbury Clinic, designed to mitigate and reduce the transmission of airborne diseases, such as tuberculosis, is organised over two levels. Gardens and circulation are woven into a fabric of internal and external spaces. A richly sensitive and sustainable design is achieved, with the building creating an environment that heals and restores dignity to a forgotten community.
Statement of the jury
A building complex designed in a modern style whose striking perforated façade elements are a nod to the region’s metal working traditions, thereby firmly anchoring its affinity and solidarity with the local population in the architecture itself.
