Ross Hall Hospital makes an entrance with planned extension

New plans have emerged at the hands of BMI Healthcare and Ikon Architects for the creation of a new theatre suite and entrance extension at Ross Hall Hospital, Glasgow.

Dovetailing with an approved application to re-clad the main building the latest plans entail a remodelling of the current layout to connect with the planned extension, alleviating pressure on services.

Connecting the hospital to the B-listed Ross Hall House the feature orange entrance extension aims to improve access and appearance with light and dark grey cladding panels matching the planned re-clad of the main hospital building and orange panels reflecting the Baronial style former mansion.

In a design statement, the applicant wrote: "The proposed new entrance canopy gives the necessary presence and gravitas to the Hospital’s main entrance assisting in providing easy of direction and wayfinding for both patients & visitors that could help reduce anxiety that may be present when approaching the hospital."

The 7m tall overhang canopy connects directly to existing theatres, reception and waiting area.

Yikes! A Revit 3D Orthogonal view is rarely a good look. Is this the best view available UR?

There is a low-res render of the re-clad here.

Noone will see it anyway as noone can get parked. They should concentrate on that and chaos of crookston road pavement parking instead of cladding
