Description

Skene Medical Centre provides new and expanded healthcare facilities in the growing community of Westhill, near Aberdeen. The facility gathers under one roof an enlarged doctors’ surgery; dentistry; social work; podiatry; physiotherapy; and other facilities, including a commercial pharmacy.

The public spaces in the building are arranged to provide an interior which is spacious, and where appropriate, open plan. Natural light floods the interior both directly through generously proportioned windows and indirectly through borrowed light from screens and glass block walls. The interior finishes of Natural Oak skirtings, door facings and door veneers with a palette of largely white walls punctuated by panels of vibrant colour are bright and welcoming. Bespoke, artist designed, signage, together with purpose designed reception counters, and feature staircase create interiors that are individual and not institutional.
