Heart of Hounslow
Heart of Hounslow Polyclinic is one of the largest health centres in the UK and set a new standard in the restructuring of primary care.
As well as GP services, outpatient facilities and social care outreach resources, it offers new and improved services for children, adolescents and people with learning difficulties.
I’ve seen a lot of LIFT projects, but this is a different quality altogether – this is as good as it gets. Andy Burnham, Minister for State for Delivery & Reform - Department for Health
The accommodation is arranged around a central atrium and circulation space, which includes the main reception, cafe and health information centre. Brilliantly-hued glazing fills this space with colour and light. The plan of the building is flexed along its length, providing a variety of enclosed and shared spaces.
The building’s distinctive cladding of grey terracotta and brightly coloured aluminium makes it a local landmark, enhancing the profile of primary healthcare in Hounslow.
