The Western Cape Government Department of Health’s new day clinic in Beaufort West was designed with a reduced environmental footprint, both during construction, and operation. With rammed earth walls of soil sourced from the nearby Beaufort West dam, rock stores to temper hot summer air and cold winter air, and landscaping that draws on plants from the area traditionally used for medical remedies, the building attempts to respect its neighbourhood and present a polite civic presence.
