The idea is to address the duality of an open community building with the introverted / confidential nature of a Doctors practice. The triangular form is open at each end, but closed along its length. Extrusions are inherently both open and closed. Each end contains public halls with out door rooms (open) and the central area the surgeries (closed). The West end is open to St Anthony’s façade with an outdoor room for waiting and contemplation.
This building is a long roof………everyone, both patients and doctors, under the same roof.
