Tamworth Hospital Redevelopment Acute Services Building provides a hub for medical, surgical and other specialities in the region and includes consultancy outreach and support for chronic and complex disease management across the whole community.

The project value was $220 million dollars.
JHCH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
John Hunter Children’s Hospital. Stage 1 has provided a new Special Care ICU, encompassing clinical spaces, family wing and dedicated palliative care spaces.
The architect wanted the design to be focused heavily on colours, materials and textures derived from nature, with a colour palette transitioning from greens through to blues, timber look finishes and large-scale wall imagery of natural, local scenes and plants.
We worked closely with EJE Architecture to provide a Specialist Lighting design as this was another primary design consideration throughout the planning process, with indirect and natural lighting utilised throughout the unit as much as possible.
Muswellbrook Hospital Emergency Department
The new $6.5m Muswellbrook Hospital Emergency Department was designed and documented by EJE to enable the delivery of a modern and augmented approach to the provision of emergency care in an environment that improved patient flows and internal and external functional relationships.
The design for the new 1000m2 Emergency Department promotes contemporary models of emergency care by providing distinct and flexible functional areas new resuscitation bays, treatment beds, fast track patient care facilities, paediatric treatment rooms, isolation rooms, dedicated consult rooms, nursing and ambulance triage areas, safe assessment treatment facilities, and separate staff office accommodation and amenities.
The public waiting area incorporates an innovative indoor/outdoor courtyard waiting space, which avoids the institutional experience which historically have been endured by patients and visitors in hospital emergency facilities at times of trauma and stress.

Belmont 16s - The Boat Shed Bar + Galley
The ‘Boat Shed’ as the name implies was originally a large boat storage area attached to the side of the Belmont 16 foot sailing club. The overall 1000 sqm open floor design includes a sports lounge with a central bar, TAB facilities, a snooker room, outdoor gaming lounge, a dedicated kitchen serving the main floor area and dining terrace looking over Lake Macquarie.
The design of the building services required detailed and thorough coordination with the Architects to allow the installation of all the services to fit within the existing structure while still being able to achieve the features the aesthetics required The Air conditioning was the most difficult design to suit the existing structure and constraints. The end solution is almost a seamless integration of the required services into the complex and creative Architectural design.
Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours
This project involved the comprehensive renovation and addition of 2 levels to a 1960’s office building originally built for Eagle Insurance.
The clients brief was for a building and fitout that would be representative of the level of finish that guests would experience on one of their tour packages, as well as to provide a high level of amenity to their staff.
Battlesticks at Scratchleys
The new facility, Battlesticks at Scratchleys, operates as a semi-independent Tapas Bar alongside the existing Scratchleys a-la-carte dining room.
The over-the-water location celebrates the city’s best views of the working harbour, and the marine micro-climate is utilised in cooling the building, with no air-conditioning required. The construction works cleverly bridged between the foreshore and a former sea-plane loading platform, requiring no new sea piles or impact on the harbour. Dramatic angled sun-shading blades on the western facade of the building protect patrons from the harsh setting summer sun, whilst still providing views to Dyke Point and shipping activity to the north-west. At night the blades become a welcoming beacon, a striking addition to the foreshore walkway.
The design of Battlesticks at Scratchleys began with careful site analysis, identifying the area as a historical place of food gathering for Indigenous Australians, where oysters and shellfish were collected from the harbour embankment. The building now continues to rest as an oyster on the foreshore, providing a good meal for passers-by.
Marline are assisting in the complete transformation of the “Doylo”, with a number of stages now complete including new bistro and gaming areas, entry relocation and an expanded alfresco area for dining and entertainment.
Increased lounge and socialisation spaces were introduced by realigning the bistro and gaming room, with unique banquette seating arrangements providing appealing seating selection for patrons. The new servery bench, bar and iconic ceiling in the gaming room provide focal areas and the use of materials such as back-lit bar panels, custom designed Axminster carpets, textured tiles and feature lights create an identity for the club as well as showcase its transformation.
The most recent update to the club is a two-storey addition, utilising an old bowling green site, which offers a new “Active Fitness” gym with an alfresco Smokehouse and craft beer garden above. Bespoke materials such as rich natural timbers, cobble effect floor tiles, industrial style light fittings and leather-look furniture were selected for the smokehouse to create an American aesthetic with timber hardwood ceiling linings in both pavilions dominating the space and adding natural warmth. The double pavilion style is visible from over a kilometre away on the Pacific Highway and serves to counterbalance the soaring porte cochere roof.
The Junction Hotel
Over the past decade The Junction has transformed from a typical suburban shopping area to that of a boutique precinct complemented by restaurants with a distinctive alfresco feel.
This was achieved by relocating a central bar and service area, allowing the principle street elevations to open up and interact with the streetscape. The interiors then responded to this lightness by providing a fresh palate of materials that reflected the beachside location without being a literal interpretation.
