NHS medical centre

Finalist in the South West 'Best Public Building' Award 2015.

hmad|architects were recommissioned to design and construct a new primary healthcare service building for an established GP practice in Okehampton. The medical practice had outgrown their existing premises which had previously been designed by hmad|architects' founding directors.


The new building delivered a light and airy waiting room, five GP consulting rooms, a pharmacy, examination rooms and staff facilities including meeting rooms arranged over two storeys. Its arrangement was considered with respect to the existing health centre; the aim was to create a unified identity for the practice with the entrances of each building arranged to face one another.
