BELFAST BACK CARE &
This project involved the retrofit, alteration and extension of a derelict commercial premises. The new clinic accommodates eight treatment rooms, two pilates studios, a rehabilitation suite and a new reception space, as well as providing necessary amenities, staff rooms and administrative spaces throughout the building. Much of the accommodation such as the treatment rooms have been cleverly stitched into the existing building footprint. The new modern extension rises behind the existing stone boundary wall, the design provides a fresh contrast to the traditional styling of the existing building. The extension’s striking cantilever is finished with a textured oxide red block at first floor level creating an entrance canopy over the unified singular main entrance; allowing patients to enter into a bright, naturally lit reception and waiting area enclosed by a small walled garden.
