Glasgow Hospital Buildings

Health Architecture in Strathclyde, western Scotland : Designs + Architects

Glasgow Healthcare Building

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Glasgow Hospital Buildings, in west Scotland. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed healthcare buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Strathclyde. The focus is on contemporary healthcare buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 1 page of Glasgow Hospital Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

“Having revisited this building I feel my initial positive response to it has been underlined. The simple uncluttered spaces are now softened and humanised by various items of furniture and personal effects, the result feeling harmonious.” Adrian Welch, Editor.

Southern General Hospital
Scotland’s biggest ever hospital building project, the New Southern Hospital in Glasgow, is entirely publicly funded. The site of the New South Glasgow Hospital has been transformed by the building of the Adult and Children’s Hospitals. Designed by IBI Nightingale (formerly Nightingale Associates, now part of the IBI Group, headquartered in Canada), the £842m publicly funded development, scheduled for completion in 2015, will give Glasgow one of the most advanced hospitals in the UK and will be the largest critical care complex in Scotland.

New Stobhill Hospital
The new Stobhill Hospital is the first of its kind to open in Scotland with the ethos behind the project that the patient comes first: all medical tests and consultations will be carried out on the same day and on the same site if possible. Upon entry the patient enters a full length, full height, glazed, public arcade, awash with natural light with a visible exit ahead easing the transition. The reception is immediately visible, and from it any department can be pointed out. All vertical circulation is at the centre of the space.

Maggies Centre Glasgow
Maggies’ Centres are a charity dedicated to offering advice and palliative care to people affected by cancer. They eschew anything ‘institutional’ and instead they advocate light, bright, cheerful linking spaces with views out to gardens and greenery. As well as providing support through counselling (which requires control of privacy) the centres also have a welcoming kitchen able to demonstrate cooking and dietary advice, a comfortable, warm Sitting Room and a larger Relaxation Room for exercising and listening to music or for larger meetings or group discussions.

Russell Baxter of Archial Architects said, “One of our chief concerns when conceiving the design for this facility was how to create a large hospital building without ruining the beautiful green space for which the Garscube Estate is renowned. Essentially, our solution involved lifting up the ground, peeling off the grass and placing the new building underneath.”
