TKA was commissioned by Tower Hamlets PCT to extend and refurbish the 1980’s Bethnal Green Health Centre. The existing building accommodated two separate GP practices and PCT health services. The centre now accommodates one GP practice at ground level and the community health services at first floor. Two new office extensions at first floor provide a hub for the health care professionals. The central entrance spaces were opened up to create one double height space with waiting areas at both levels linked by a central staircase; creating a calm, uplifting place to wait for treatment with views out towards the public green space. The treatment rooms are located along two ‘spines’ either side of the central space all with outside views while the service stairs, WCs and storage are located in the central core.
