Manaaki is a stand‑alone day surgery facility at Mercy Hospital, Dunedin.

The building contains two levels and accommodates two operating theatres, associated CSSD and recovery spaces, as well as consultation rooms and a reception/waiting area on the upper level.  

The lower level houses Mercy Cancer Care.

The building is on a residential street adjoining the hospital, so care has been taken to provide a context to the residential streetscape and to the more commercial approach of the Mercy Hospital design. Particular consideration has been given to existing trees on the site.

A combination of material selection, outdoor spaces, landscaping and indoor outdoor connection provides an environment to aid the patient’s experience.
