Lakelands Medical Centre is a multi-tenancy medical centre on a 4640m² site within the North Lakes town centre.

The 2000m² Centre is made up of 10 tenancies that varies in size from 450m² to 55m². Tenancies include Doctors, Pharmacy, Podiatrist,

Pathology, X-Ray, Eye Clinic, Audiology and Dentist.


The use of covered external verandahs link the tenancies and provides direct access to amenities and communal areas.

External colours and finishes were selected to highlight the materials used and provide a fresh contemporary appearance to complement the form of the building. Use of passive design principles including sunshading screens assist in reducing energy consumption.


8i Architects were later employed by subsequent tenants to provide design fitout services. The Lakelands Medical Practice, Gaitway Podiatry and

Moreton Eye Clinic fitouts were also designed by 8i Architects.

8i Architects

8i Architects is a Brisbane based architectural design practice specialising in innovative, functional and sustainable design solutions. Our focus is on design excellence, providing quality spaces that are unique to the site and the client’s needs.


I have worked with Charmaine, Hieu and the team at 8i Architects for the past 6 years. I can honestly say that if you want no nonsense, non-ego based, well thought through and sensible architecture then let 8i manage your project for you. 


In my opinion 8i are big enough to handle projects up to the value of around $100m but small enough to provide the level of service that you won't get from the larger architectural firms who will give your project to a junior architect to manage.
