Australia’s largest tertiary oral health facility, in the inner-Brisbane suburb of Herston, combines natural sophistication with built-in sustainability. Its beautiful natural hardwood features are injected with exceptional long-term protection and ease by Cutek Extreme oil.
Blackbutt timber ‘fins’ with a matching staircase handrail make a striking statement in the cutting-edge facility, which was awarded three top spots at the 2016 Queensland Architecture Awards: for Public Architecture, Interior Architecture and Sustainable Architecture.
The fins cleverly conceal the building’s steel posts while blending beautifully with surrounding gum trees. Cutek Extreme enhances the hardwood’s natural beauty, resists the greying effects of the sun for longer, and helps to ensure lasting dimensional stability.
