Banbridge Health and Care Centre

A tangible affirmation of the value of the public domain

Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects in association with Avanti Architects for Southern Health & Social Care Trust

This local health facility provides a range of primary care, community care and acute diagnostic services. It comprises a variety of defined spaces providing a wide spectrum of care services to Banbridge and its catchment area. Notwithstanding the complexity of the programme and the challenges of public procurement, the outcome here is a calm uplifting civic building deftly interwoven into its site, a tangible affirmation of the value of the public domain.

This is a laudable and humanising achievement transcending current fixations with that which is readily quantifiable, to provide delightful, bright, well-proportioned spaces of tranquil excellence and service for this society.
