£2.7m Shields Centre opens its doors to patients
March 5 2015
Intended to offer a one stop shop for access to health and social care services it replaces a former gap site and includes a walled garden and allotment space together with fin details created by artist Alex Hamilton.
Designed by Anderson Bell Christie and delivered by contractor CBC the scheme will enhance community service provision in the local area alongside a new community centre and Gaelic school.
Commenting on the design the practice said: “The building scale takes its cue from the nearby tenements, and likewise the brick selection is contemporary and reflective of the sandstone warmth of the residential tenements; contributing to the local fabric regeneration. The building is centred round a bright, airy, double-height waiting and reception area with short wings containing consulting rooms leading off the main public space.”
