South Liverpool NHS Treatment Centre

Posted: 1st May 2011

Garston, Liverpool (2011)

Sited on an elevated plot in Garston the new Health Centre replaced a much loved Edwardian Hospital.  Strong geometric forms clad in stainless steel combine with a dramatic welcoming entrance carved into the sandstone create a new landmark.  A Café and pharmacy animate the street frontage at lower ground level.  Fragments of the demolished hospital offer references to the history of the site.  A large courtyard provides the inner focal point housing a ‘Tropical Garden’ inspired by the birth of tropical medicine in Liverpool.  The building has been designed to achieve BREEAM Healthcare ‘Excellent’.  The design includes renewable energy technology that supplies 44% of the buildings energy demand via solar thermal collectors and ground source heat pumps which supply both heating and cooling.  This technology will reduce the anticipated building’s carbon emissions by 15%.
