Keppie secure Orkney hospital commission
August 2 2016
The exposed site necessitated the prioritisation of shelter with buildings used as shields against often extreme weather to allow the creation of usable external spaces.
To this end individual buildings have been designed as a series of flowing curves sweeping from the main entrance to inpatient accommodation.
Keppie design director David Ross, said: “We’re thrilled to have been appointed to such an important and exciting project. It’s great to be back working in Orkney, where our previous experience of island life, people and their values helped inform our successful hospital submission.”
Upon completion the hospital will play host to range of healthcare facilities including maternity care, GP practices and dental services.
