Teach and Treat Dental Centre, Western Isles

NORR Consultants Ltd

The new facility is located within the grounds of the Western Isles. Training facilities are also included and will be used by Scottish Universities and Colleges. The building contains 12 surgeries arranged over two storeys. Superb distant views out towards the coastal bay have been embraced by the built form providing the opportunity of associated therapeutic value to patients. The building incorporates robust details and is enveloped with low maintenance materials that are appropriate to the severe coastal climate of Stornoway. The built form is simple and sculptural in intention, and reflective of the vernacular precedents within its adjacent context.
