Information about this scheme

The first of its kind in the UK, this new model of community care brings together acute and primary services on a shared campus, including four GP practices, a day procedure unit, urgent care department, a 40-bed ensuite ward and community outreach facilities. The scheme is composed of a series of department pavilions, arranged around glazed courtyard gardens and connected by glass framed streets allowing for ease of wayfinding and the maximising of natural light and views. The new building’s materiality, form and structure has been carefully designed to seamlessly blend into the tonal topographic palette of the country landscape, while also appearing prominent enough to showcase a sense of presence and engender an appropriate level of civic pride. The streets connecting each pavilion are fully glazed on both levels, maximising natural light while also allowing for ease of orientation and impressive panoramas of the enclosed gardens and the surrounding rivers and mountains. Through this considered design, a therapeutic environment has been created for all users, both internally and externally, contributing to a relaxed and holistic setting.
