About the project

Aberdeen Community Health & Care Village is located on a very constrained City Centre site with added complications of level differentials between the various bounding streets, the presence of a Grade B Listed building on the site and the considerable problem of traffic noise. In addition, jmarchitects was tasked with the challenge of creating a 'village' environment within a very urban context without losing any of the functionality. The design outcome, incorporating the entrance atrium core within the heart of the building with external spaces and departments arranged around to the boundary extremities, is both effective and efficient.
