The South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (Sahmri) officially opened its doors late last year.

ID/Lab worked with Woods Bagot to deliver the Wayfinding Strategy & Signage Design for this project.

It’s co-located with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, another project we are working on to deliver the Wayfinding Strategy and Signage Design. That project is set to finish in 2016.

The triangulated diagrid façade responds to the environment like a living organism and was inspired by the skin of a pine cone.

For the design we looked at the clean lines, the transparent see-through theme and the dominating geometric aspects of the building.
