Health building in central London, housing a large GP practice and a wide range of health facilities

The building houses a large GP practice, paediatric, dental services, children’s services, breast screening and diagnostic imaging, plus supporting office space, staff facilities, library and meeting rooms.

Fully accessible ground and first floors accommodate all public and clinical space, whilst the second floor is a private space for use by staff with teaching rooms. Some areas and rooms on the ground floor have been designed to be used out of clinic hours so have their own, discrete routes of access and security.

Cantilevered rooms at first and second floor provide substantially larger floorplates at these levels whilst allowing a small ground floor footprint and reducing the overall mass of the building.

Internally, the building has been designed around an internal street, a double or triple-height space running through the building that is enlivened by bridges, views, colourful graphics and a bold signage system by Studio Myerscough/
