Scottish War Blinded facility, Scotland by Page/Park Architects

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + IMAGES + PLANS] Charity the Scottish National Institute for War Blinded has commissioned Page/Park Architects to design its new facility in Wilkieston, West Lothian

The 800m² building will replace the charity’s existing 1950’s home which currently occupies an adjacent site, servicing the increasing number of blinded or visually impaired armed forces servicemen and women.

Facilities will include a workshop, art space, training areas, a gym, therapy spaces and admin offices as well as a remembrance room.

The scheme, inspired by a hand-carved Chinese celestial dragon, will feature ‘a more open plan arrangement’ and is due to start on site in the next few months. Completion is scheduled for late 2010.
