Wokingham Medical Centre
BWA were approached to convert a redundant 1990s office block, substantially extending it to the front and adding a penthouse conference room to the roof. The 1,600 sq m NHS medical centre will house 16 doctors, 5 nurses, pharmacy and a dentist suite. Design features include room layouts divided by bespoke joinery allowing for ‘domestic’ consulting areas to the front and ‘clinical’ examination areas to the rear; the use of intelligent glazing to the front elevation providing privacy to consulting rooms behind; and calm, non-institutional spaces throughout. Wokingham Medical Centre was completed after a year on site and is now officially open to the public.
