CliniKids is a branch of the Telethon Kids Institute and is Australia’s very first clinical service for children with early developmental delay and/or autism. The build included therapy rooms, a phlebotomy room, a creche, open plan office working space, meeting rooms and a reception/waiting room. For this incredibly important project, Metrowest collaborated with a specialist team with experience in designing Autism-friendly spaces. A significant contribution to the success of the project was ensuring the participation of key stakeholders in the design development; the Telethon Kids Institute, families and clinical staff were included in a design briefing exercise by Metrowest. This ensured that every detail of the project worked to create a safe and calming environment for the children and families to enjoy.
