Page\Park lead Bristo Square Wellbeing Centre
March 23 2018Wellbeing Centre at Bristo Square designed by Page\Park.
This will entail refurbishment of the lower three levels of the current Morris & Steedman designed modernist building, coupled with access improvements and connectivity with a neighbouring health centre.
New additions include a single-storey entrance pavilion and green roof intended to complement the unlisted concrete structure without resort to pastiche or mimicry, while remaining subservient to the dominant McEwan Hall.
Outlining their site strategy the architects wrote: “It is intended that the new entrance will enhance the streetscape, and mutually benefit the external civic space (creating a new internal arcade opening out onto the square), and the existing building (providing a necessary accessible route to the Wellbeing Centre, the University Medical Centre and university pharmacy).”
Finished in pre-cast concrete cladding with bronze finish curtain walling the extension will sit as an extrusion of the existing podium deck.
