Sandyford Hub, Glasgow
Parkhead Health Centre Building, Scotland – design by Studio Kap Architects
21 May 2007
Sandyford East Parkhead
Date built: 2007
Design: Studio KAP
The Sandyford Initiative is a primary care organisation now promoting sexual health and family planning through a network of new clinics or “Hubs” around Glasgow. Sandyford East is the first of these, built as an extension to Parkhead Health Centre.
The Sandyford building infill’s the corner of a double-cross existing plan, thereby consolidating the urban corner of two streets and creating a small courtyard between new and old. It can be entered both through the existing centre and independently, via the courtyard.
Externally a predominantly timber and galvanized steel façade gently screens a more private world behind a foil of trees.
