The new surgery at Langport is located in the centre of the town behind the main high street frontage with easy pedestrian & vehicular access. The relatively open site allowed for a distinct stand-alone structure which suited a functional radial layout internally. The result is a striking polygonal, multi-gabled building built using traditional materials of brick and tile.
The facilities include consulting rooms for 6 GPs, two treatment rooms, an interview room, generous common room, waiting area and reception. LED Architects have recently completed a major extension to the surgery complex providing additional nurse’s offices and conference room.
Key environmental benefits include:
- Compact radial floor layout
- Good quality natural light & ventilation to all key spaces
- Use of robust, low maintenance materials
