Glasgow hospital scoops third award
The state-of-the-art facility, which required 1,600t of structural steelwork for its main frame (see NSC Sept 2007), has also scooped the ‘Best Designed Hospital 2009’ at the Building Better Healthcare Awards, and the Roses Design Awards’ ‘Best Public Building’ accolade.
Commenting on Stobhill the judges for the GIA Awards said they were impressed by the civilised approach to the new hospital – detailing has been honed to produce a calming space.
“The central circulation is clear bringing light deep in to the plan whilst the timber clad atriums provide warmth and light. Externally, the beautifully detailed canopies provide punctuations to a cultured facade.”
Margaret Campbell, Commissioning Manager for the hospital, said: “We are delighted to have won a third award. It is well deserved recognition for all the hard work put in by the design team.”
