Plean Street Centre for Health

Add to Scrapbook


Built on the site of a parish council building adapted for health use, the new centre provides 880m2 of accommodation over 3 floors. The centre provides 8 dental surgeries, community treatment space and a base for community based health workers.

Located off the main thoroughfare of Dumbarton Road the building sits amongst traditional sandstone tenements and high rise flats. Whilst the previous building had sat quietly back from the road, the new building announces itself by stepping hard up to its boundary and presenting a two-storey opening to the set-back in the tenement pattern. The building’s available budget was modest and the design response has been to create an economic plan with a restrained set of elements on the external skin. Clad in coloured aluminium cladding the rounded corners’ bright white finish has been suggested as being tooth-like.

Internally, receptions control access to each floor and waiting areas offer natural light and views of the surrounding red sandstone blocks.
