JM Architects unveils Highland healthcare teaching block
JM Architects has completed this £4.3million healthcare teaching facility at Moray College in Elgin
The three-storey ‘Life Science Centre’ contains a conference facility on the ground floor with two floors of research rooms, mock wards and classrooms above.
A double-height glazed gallery link, which acts as a new entrance to both buildings, connects the new extension to the Grade B-listed Victorian art block.
Rod Duncan, design director, JM Architects
‘The relationship to the listed academy building set the precedence for our design and the opportunity to transform the entry and visual connection of the College to the historic fabric of Elgin was critical to our design philosophy.’
