Abstract

Five community health and care partnerships were established in April 2006 and are jointly managed by Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The South West CHCP will be the first next generation styled development to be delivered at Craigton Road. The building is designed to fully integrate with the surrounding landscape. It will provide a "one stop shop" offering a comprehensive range of community care services for older people, adults and children and their families and shall accommodate both community and voluntary organisations. The linear form of the building addresses the M8 motorway to the South, whilst the roof and end profile of the structural bays break down the mass and reduce the scale of building within the residential context of Craigton Road. The selection of Corten cladding reflects the area's dynamic shipbuilding heritage. Aerofoil roofs, orientated to maximise north light, are arranged in six bays which provide a coherent rhythm to the architecture measured at 5,700m² over two levels. The building is arranged as a sequence of spaces and thresholds, gradually becoming more private, organised around internal and external courtyards that allow connection back to natural light and air.
