Cameron Chisholm Nicol were approached by Not For Profit organisation, Connect Groups to design a community link booth to be serviced by their volunteers at Fiona Stanley Hospital. This project commenced as pro-bono concept design to support Connect Groups’ funding application with Lotterywest for the project. Upon securing funding, Cameron Chisholm Nicol were commissioned to complete detailed documentation and oversee the fabrication and installation.

The objective for the Community Link Booth is to connect patients and their carers to community support services, so it was important that the booth promoted an informal and friendly assistance model. Cameron Chisholm Nicol sought inspiration from the geometry and colour tones of the Banksia Melaleuca pine cones endemic to the area. The resultant inverted S-shaped seating bench provides opportunities for multiple conversations between volunteers and the public, whilst a self-help area with iPad devices, an integrated video screen and a stand up counter with integrated secure storage below, completes the booth’s various functions.

The Community Link Booth provides welcome contrast to the rectilinear internal pedestrian street and formal reception counter and establishes a dialogue with the Stuart Green ‘in between and all around’ artwork further along the atrium space. Most importantly however, it serves as a beacon for information to patients and their carers regarding services available within the community, helping to reduce inpatient loads on the healthcare system.
