ApproachThis healthcare building was developed to improve access to NHS dental treatment for the residents of Campbeltown & Kintyre and provide improved training facilities for dental students.
The purpose built accommodation is set into a grassy embankment and is naturally split into 2 distinct buildings. It provides accommodation for local independent dental practitioners and a clinical teaching environment and training facilities for undergraduate outreach dental training.
In Architectural terms the design philosophy was to create a building which was both welcoming and professional. It has been designed to open up as many views to the patient as possible from the entrance to the waiting area through to the dental surgeries themselves, making this healthcare space bright, airy and generous in feel.
