The Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) project lead by developers Hansen Yuncken & Leighton Contractors, sets a new benchmark for the delivery of healthcare in Adelaide and across Australia.

As the State’s primary healthcare facility and teaching hospital, The Royal Adelaide Hospital provides increased patient capacity and technical expertise. Situated adjacent to the South Australian Medical Research Institute, Adelaide’s North-West corner cements its position as one of Australia’s leading medical precincts and rejuvenates the city’s West End.

Tract Consultants, in collaboration with architects Silver Thomas Hanley, Design Inc and a suite of technical consultants, were engaged to design and document 6.3 Ha of open space surrounding and within the hospital.

The new site at the west end of North Terrace on former rail yards connects the western parkland belt to the River Torrens. The design philosophy, ‘Park within a hospital, hospital within a park’, stems from this clear geographic link, and recent scientific research that demonstrates the increased rate of healing and wellbeing of patients that are connected to the natural world.

Over 70 internal courtyards, skygardens and balconies provide patients and staff a variety of areas for respite, refreshment, physical therapy, quiet contemplation and lively places to socialise.

Extensive public plazas, gardens and parklands wrap around the building, forming a vital urban park open and connected to the city. The main East Plaza has the capacity to hold large public events as well as providing intimate spaces for passive recreation.
