Fitzroy crossing renal hostel

Designed by Iredale Pedersen Hook, the "fitzroy crossing renal hostel" offers long-term accommodation for patients from Australian aboriginal populations who have to undergo renal dialysis.

Situated in the small Australian town of Fitzroy, located more than 400 kilometers from the nearest town, the healthcare facility provides human support for residents who can be self-sufficient or have a caretaker who cares for them. The project was recently awarded the World Architecture Festival in 2017, the largest annual international architecture event.

The design idea of Iredale Pedersen Hook is to create a safe environment where residents can move freely and establish relationships as if they were a big community. The property comprises 13 rooms from one or two rooms, which have been distributed in six small "houses". Accommodation units are accessible to wheelchairs and, above all, protect residents from mosquitoes. A front porch allows the encounter with visitors, while a back porch offers greater privacy. Meal preparation and other tasks are carried out by the staff of the facility in a common building.
