In collaboration with the Victorian Health Building Authority and Vincent Crisp Architects, we delivered this 37-module project as part of a $52.1 million investment into new residential rehabilitation facilities across regional Victoria. The investment was established to support the Barwon, Hume, and Gippsland regions, offering specialist services to an additional 900 Victorians each year.

Traralgon Youth Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation offers a 16-week program tailored to young people and their families, with 24-hour care and support to reintegrate back into the community.

Inside, bright open spaces serve as a backdrop for residents to relax and unwind. Outdoor gardens and recreational areas seamlessly connect with the natural surroundings, while a central cluster of eucalyptus trees adds to the tranquil setting.

By utilising modular construction, we completed the facility faster than traditional methods without compromising on quality. This project highlights the positive impact of well-designed spaces on rehabilitation, providing residents with the comfort and support needed to rebuild their lives.
