Brisbane Legacy House is a bespoke project that supports an innovative model of service, embracing key partner institutions to create transformative social infrastructure for Queensland families. The new building, on a culturally significant site, will co-locate with existing veterans and family services operating out of the Greenslopes Hospital Precinct. The precinct incorporates both Medical and Research support including the Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation (GMRF), the Keith Payne VC Mental Health unit, and Greenslopes Private Hospital.
Within the new Legacy House, a permanent collaboration space has been included to allow RSLQ, Mates 4 Mates, Open Arms and others to work together on service delivery needs, particularly to those families supporting an incapacitated veteran.
The design will reflect the New Model of Care providing the interface of key veteran agencies and family support in one location, which is key to future success of the organisation.
Informed by a collaborative workshop process, the new Legacy House is envisioned as a connective space that links house and park, and accommodates the program in distinctive, layered spaces. There is an emphasis on personal occupation, offering a choice of settings that balance confidential and collaborative needs. The site’s history is expressed through tactile materials and the dual house form which reflects the original Red Cross building that previously occupied the site.
