Woodview Medical Centre: Thorplands, Northampton

The original greenfield site had a steep slope from the road to the woodlands at the rear which facilitated a single storey building to the front with an additional lower half storey at the rear.

The entrance/reception/waiting is positioned in the centre of the building, accessed from the front. A central corridor runs full length to all the consulting and treatment rooms which all enjoy south facing views over the woodlands. Half of the corridor is turned through 22deg to enable the receptionist to view both halves of the corridor.

Several parts of the building are leased out to a pharmacy, dentist and a small Physiotherapy.
