The Fiona Stanley Hospital is a staggering architectural delight located in Perth, Australia and designed by Hassell Architects. The stunning campus features a variety of prominent green spaces, with a linear park and several courtyards offering a restorative view for those in recovery.

The Fiona Stanley Hospital also boasts an impressive environmental feature; the roof has been designed to serve as a habitat for the Carnaby Black Cockatoo, an endangered and federally protected local bird. The stylish medical campus is named for Australian medical researcher Fiona Stanley, who is an advocate for incorporating green spaces into hospital complexes due to their proven healing benefits.

The wavy, geometric facade maximizes both the natural light available and the views for patients.
