Port Talbot Healthcare Centre by Holder Mathias Architects

[IMAGES + PROJECT DATA] The new Port Talbot Healthcare Centre, designed by Holder Mathias Architects, has opened its doors to staff and patients

The Primary Care Resource Centre brings together four GP surgeries, a dental surgery, a physiotherapy centre, podiatry and orthotic treatment facilities and a pharmacy under one roof.

Commissioned by Neath Port Talbot Local Health Board, the 6,000m² building boasts 60 treatment rooms and will serve 50,000 people in the south Wales area.

Emma Jackson, project leader for Holder Mathias, said:  ‘Our brief was to create a landmark building in Port Talbot that would engage with the people who will use the centre. The distinctive curve of the building echoes the landscape it is set in as well as welcoming people into the building. It contains a café and community meeting area, which we hope will allow people to take ownership of the space.’

  • This building belongs to the nasty 80's.
    Sorry., but it's poor.

    Unsuitable or offensive?

  • Is it the norm that the actual project architect involved in developing the brief, designing the concept, the building, the interior design and obtaining the statutory approvals andto impliment the project, firstly does not merit a mention, and secondly, is not quoted, as the design concept actually quoted in this article is incorrect and irelevant.
